The program has an international profile in research. Study opportunities are enhanced by the quality of its library holdings on classical antiquity, medieval and early modern England, Australian colonial history, and Tasmaniana. On the Hobart campus there is the John Elliott Classics Museum, with an important collection of pottery, sculpture and currency, while off campus there are the State Archives, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart, and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston.
Our Centre for Tasmanian Historical Studies publishes Tasmanian Historical Studies and holds an annual conference.
We also offer an online Diploma of Family History that builds your skills and knowledge in finding and interpreting information about your ancestors (or even someone else's), and sharing family stories with others (concession tuition fees - conditions apply).
