Message from the Head of Department

Welcome to the Department of Historical and Heritage Studies of the University of Pretoria, which offers excellent opportunities for the study of the diversity of human experiences across the globe over time.  With courses on African, South African, European and American history, and heritage cultural tourism, the Department offers invaluable insights into the factors that have shaped the lived experience of world communities and their interactions.

Studying History broadens your intellectual horizons and equips you with a range of skills, such as critical thinking, research capability, and the ability to select, order and analyse evidence and to write effectively. Moreover, History is a gateway to many important and rewarding careers in both the private and public sectors. We invite you to explore the courses that we offer and the profiles of the highly dedicated academic staff and to seriously consider taking courses in the Department.
