History at St Joseph's Catholic College

Course description

An exhilarating opportunity to study the development of key global, political and social issues, vitally relevant to the present day world. History increases the employability of young people because it teaches them to think in a unique combination of ways. The subject is an outstanding stepping stone to higher education courses because of the highly regarded academic rigour of the studies - a significant number of our students have continued on to History related courses at university. It also compliments other A Level subjects superbly.

Studies of the Cold War and Civil Rights in the USA enable students to develop skills to analyse the global, political and social issues which have helped shape important world issues today. Studies of Britain in the era of the First World War and the Russian Revolutionary period offer students key opportunities to consider political and philosophical trends and to critically evaluate views and interpretations found in a rich vein of evidence.

Entry requirements

GCSE grade B or above in History. If you have not studied History at GCSE academic students with a grade B or above in GCSE English will also be considered.
