Department of History




Situated on the Pearl River Delta at the gateway to China, Macau has a long and rich history that has been shaped by over five centuries of interaction and exchange between East and West. With an internationally recognized, award-winning staff, the Department of History is at the forefront of promoting an understanding of the region’s vibrant past and offers excellence in historical research as well as high quality teaching and supervision.

In order to shape the future one must first understand the past. Students who study history discover how the past gave rise to our modern interconnected world from a plurality of perspectives. In doing so, history majors engage with the widest range of topics, including politics and government, war and society, religion and the arts, intellectual and cultural life, gender and ethnicity, and other themes. They are trained to make good and critical use of textual and material resources and learn to become storytellers who are able speak to broad audiences. Being familiar with the complexities of past human experience, they are well sought after and prepared for careers in many fields.
