Department of Historical Studies


Historical Studies is one of the original departments of the Rand Afrikaans University, prior to its merger into the University of Johannesburg in 2005. The department provides lecturing and supervision in historical studies until doctoral level. More recently, the department became responsible for the BA Tourism Development Programme, as well as the BA Hons in Tourism Development. Departmental skill and expertise within history, heritage, historical consciousness and development have provided the ideal bridge between the two subjects. The department is also responsible for teaching Context Studies, in an exciting initiative with the faculty’s foundation programme. All student who register for the foundation programme in the Faculty of Humanities, take Context Studies 1000 and 2000, for which our staff are responsible. This exposes them to a broad introduction to world history together with other important concepts in the humanities and its fields of studies.
