In the British study, The Transformation of Britain 1918-79, students will learn about the extent to which Britain was   transformed politically, socially, economically and culturally in the years.

The focus of study is on changes and developments over a broad timescale, 1918–79. This option also contains an in depth study of historical interpretations on a broad question, which considers what impact Thatcher’s governments had on Britain, 1979–97. 

The American study option comprises an in depth study of the USA in the years 1955–92; from post-1945 affluence, through racial and political protests in the 1960s, to the rise of right-wing groups in the 1980s and the development of bitter divisions between Democrats and Republicans.
