History AS/A2 at Sir Frederic Osborn School

Course description

Students on this course will have the opportunity
to learn about the social, political and economic history of Britain and other countries
in Europe, America and more distant parts of the world. You will
develop your knowledge and understanding of some fascinating
events and people. History is also about exploring how the world
has developed through time and you will learn how to investigate,
debate and critically analyse the past.
The course is divided into four units with assessment based on
a combination of exams and coursework. You will be expected
to consider the evidence of sources, develop detailed arguments,
reach sustained arguments and, at A2, carry out an enquiry leading
to an extended piece of writing.
History students become very effective communicators,
researchers and analytical thinkers. These skills are widely
recognised and valued by employers and universities. History
combines well with Arts, Languages and Science based subjects and
can lead to a wide range of exciting and challenging careers, such as
journalism, law, teaching, publishing, business and the civil service.
