The course explores the Australian economy in a historical context. It will examine aspects of the history of the Australian economy from early Indigenous society through to the present. It is intended for students who are seeking a broad understanding of how the economy works. The approach adopted will emphasise that the present Australian economy needs to be seen in the context of the historical pattern of development and change. While the course deals primarily with economic factors, social and political contexts and connections will also be considered.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate an understanding of the ways in which the Australian economy has changed over time and will have developed a perspective of Australia’s present position in the international economy that takes these historical changes into account;
- present a variety of interpretations and debates on Australia’s economic history; and,
- demonstrate research and communication skills through tutorial work and essay writing.
- Tutorial participation (10) [LO 1,2,3]
- Short Essay (20) [LO 1,2,3]
- Extended Essay (30) [LO 1,2,3]
- Final examination (40) [LO 1,2]
