Undergraduate Student Profile
Current BA/BCom student
"I am currently completing a conjoint Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce degree, majoring in History, Commerical Law and Human Resource Management. My decision to study History stems from a passion for New Zealand's past, and an interest in the people and events that have shaped who we are as a nation.
Victoria's History programme has exposed me to a vast array of competing ideas and opinions that have challenged many of my pre-existing assumptions about history, energised my interest in the past and provided me with a solid base with which to undertake future independent research.
The skills and knowledge I have gained whilst studying have also allowed me to engage with local history and participate in the wider Wellington community. For example, I have been given the opportunity to research and develop a series of historical interpretive panels for a community group."
