History

Type of Course: AS and A2

At this level you will study:

· Significant events, individuals and issues.

· A range of historical perspectives

· The diversity of society

· The history of more than one country

· A substantial element of English history

· Continuity and change over time.

At AS Level

Students will study 2 units and this makes up 50% of the Advanced (A2) level course.

The course is made up of a mixture of early and modern studies encompassing the Black Death and the Russian Revolution and enables students to develop an understanding of key political and social aspects affecting different time periods. It requires students to work independently to further develop existing historical skills.

At A2 Level

At Advance level there are 2 further units.

Historical Interpretations and Investigation is a coursework unit which requires students to develop research skills and gives them freedom to study a topic of the choice out of many options covering different time periods.

Historical Themes is an examined unit which requires students to understand how and why change occurs socially, politically or economically over an extended period of time and with what consequences.

Assessment

There are two written exams at the end of the AS course. There is one written exam at the end of the A2 Level course and 2 x 2000 word pieces of coursework.

Opportunities

The study of History develops practical reasoning skills. It also develops the ability to communicate complex ideas and formulate clear arguments that rely on a combination of evidence and personal opinion.   It helps develop awareness both socially and politically and encourages debate.

History, either A Level or degree level, is a tremendously versatile qualification as many of the main professions recognise the value of the skills developed, including accountancy, teaching, local/national government, the legal profession, media and publishing, museum services, banking and research posts within universities and television.
