History Standard and Higher IB *Fees Payable* at Cobham Hall *Fees Payable*
The study of History encourages us to reflect critically on events in the past, evaluate differing accounts and understand how our world has been shaped politically, culturally, economically and socially. Students must engage with a range of sources about the past, weigh up different interpretations and formulate arguments which justify their own opinions. All these are skills which help us to develop an increasingly mature understanding of the world in which we live.
Students who study History have access to a wide range of career and higher education opportunities. They learn how to evaluate and analyse information, how to weigh up evidence and how to communicate complex ideas effectively. These skills are recognised and valued by employers, universities and colleges. A qualification in History is directly relevant in areas where it is important to have knowledge of the past in order to understand current events. Such careers might include journalism or politics. A knowledge of the past is needed in careers such as archaeology, museum or heritage work and conservation. Careers which require research and report-writing skills, such as those acquired when studying History, might include law, publishing and management.
