History

History. See the future. It’s in the past.

The world as we know it today has been shaped by events of the past. All developed countries maintain a National Archive and historical professions, both of which are paid for out of taxpayer money. This is in recognition of the simple fact that knowledge of the past is essential to society. What happens in the present, and what will happen in the future, is very much governed by what happened in the past. Without knowledge of the past we would be without identity, we would be lost on an endless sea of time. Learn about history the smart way with History courses at CCE, The University of Sydney.
