The course offers a range of interesting themes relating to conflict and power in the twentieth century. Revolutions in Russia and the developing influence of Hitler and Nazism will be studied. Finally many events of significance that took place in America will be studied including the Wall Street crash, race, the Cold War and the policies of various Presidents including Kennedy, Clinton and Bush.
The course is classroom based and an exam is given for each of the three units. Also an historical investigation will be completed in class and internally marked.
A grade C or above is highly respected given the academic challenges. Many employers and educational institutions welcome this qualification. This achievement will also give students the opportunity study an A level in history.
