Level 3 History

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr E. Campbell

“I believe we were all glad to leave New Zealand. It is not a pleasant place. Amongst the natives there is absent that charming simplicity which is found at Tahiti; and the greater part of the English are the very refuse [rubbish] of society. Neither is the country itself attractive.” So wrote the naturalist Charles Darwin in 1835 of New Zealand. However, over the next 185 years this land was to be the setting of dramatic and transformative confrontation as the rival worlds of Māori and Pākehā clashed and, out of this conflict, there would emerge a new and unique nation – New Zealand. The story of this history, and the legacies that are still being lived with today, will be explored in this course. The entire breadth of the history of New Zealand will be examined, from pre-European times right up to today. Never has it been so important to learn about our own national past. This course is highly recommended to any students interested in studying History, Law or Criminal Justice at university, as well as anyone who is simply interested in learning about New Zealand’s forgotten or misunderstood history.
