There's been a major development in the teaching of the history of the Pacific with the development of a pan Pacific undergraduate course that will be delivered through the internet.

The unique curriculum will cover history from the first arrivals in the Pacific, and includes courses on languages, migration patterns and voyaging traditions.

The course, which has links to major source materials around the world, has been developed in a collaboration between two senior academics at the University of the South Pacific.

Senior lecturer in History, Doctor Max Quanchi and the head of the School of Social Sciences, Morgan Tuimaleali'ifano.

To find out more Isabelle Genoux contacted them in Suva, starting with Dr Quanchi.
