History AS/A Level at Djanogly City Academy
In the AS course you will study more than one country to investigate change over time with a British depth study between 1930–1997, with an enquiry focused on Churchill using sources to investigate the unit. You will also study a non-British period — France in Revolution and Rule of Napoleon between 1774–1815 with a focus on knowledge of the time period.
In the second year you will study a thematic study and historic interpretations based around civil rights in the USA between 1865–1992, and a non-examination unit which consists of writing a topic essay that you select from a period that you have studied and are interested in. These units require investigation into different identities within society and an appreciation of social, cultural and religious aspects with a focus on independent learning skills alongside a study of the interpretation of events.
Grade B in GCSE History (desirable).
Examination only. If you complete the A Level course, one nonexamination unit (a topic essay).
You can use the skills learnt in History in a variety of ways. It is a useful subject for any career which requires independent learning, critical thinking and decision-making skills. You will investigate past politics, societies, cultures, languages, health, art, education, money, conflicts and more, and look at how things have developed over time and connect the events to understand how we got where we are today.
