A new course in 2019 from the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences offers students from any discipline, the opportunity to experience history in a unique immersive study tour overseas. Students will visit the ground on which the Great War was fought, and learn the lessons of a war that reshaped Europe and changed the world. The Anzac Battlefields and Beyond (HIST2206) will offer successful students 12 academic credit points toward their degree, and the chance to pursue further opportunities while overseas like internships.
Across sixteen days students will retrace Australia’s involvement in the Great War, from Gallipoli to the Western Front. Students will visit six cities across Europe, and discover the ways that war is both forgotten and remembered. Students will learn the stories of pivotal events that marred a generation and shaped today’s world.
This remarkable opportunity to learn, to travel, to challenge yourself and meet new people, will be open to students from across the University who have completed at least one semester of study by departure.
The tour is scheduled to run from June 28 to July 8 in 2019. Further information is available on the Programs and Courses website.
