History A-Level

Why study History A Level?

The course builds on your understanding of the past through experiencing a broad and balanced course of study that considers modern and early modern aspects and issues that include political, cultural, ethnic and religious diversity. This subject will further develop your historical skills and an understanding of the nature of History

Course Content

First Year Course Content

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. 

Both units involve a separate examination to be sat in May/June of the academic year. 

Second Year Course Content
