The University of

Tasmania is

offering as part of

its Diploma of

Family History, a

unit entitled ‘Oral

History’, which is

fully online and has

a fee concession for

domestic students

Stories are central to the human experience.

Shared family stories contribute to a more complete picture of where we have come from and where we are going. In Oral History, you will learn about gathering family history through interviews. You will explore the ways in which oral history can complement, supplement, and even contradict written, pictorial, and other records. Practical skills you will acquire include how to record, transcribe, and share oral histories in a written form. You will also engage with ethical concerns and issues that may arise during the process of acquiring and sharing oral histories.
