Making History - MHIZ300

This unit is subject to a quota. Limited places are available. Please refer to the Faculty for further information

The Modern History PACE unit involves practical research projects created in consultation with external partners, cultural and community organisations. Students benefit from first hand engagement with public historians and the practice of history outside the university. The PACE unit encourages Modern History majors to evaluate how their discipline specific knowledge can be used in a variety of workplaces. This unit is intended to teach and assess the skills that we believe modern history majors should acquire during their study. Students design a research project, identify the best way to achieve its objectives, unearth relevant research materials and archives, and produce a professional piece of written work that communicates their findings in the most appropriate format – this may take a variety of forms. Students also reflect on the ways their research project transforms their understanding of the discipline of modern history. Students work with people from different backgrounds, often collaboratively, give and receive valuable feedback that improves their work, they also need to communicate their findings orally in clear and concise presentations.
