The objective is a history that is fully contextualised, culturally significant and academically grounded.

  • To provide those interested in the history of the family with an opportunity to obtain formal training in the methodologies and concepts of the history of the family.
  • To contribute to and support each student's personal quest for intellectual and moral autonomy
