Humanities GCSE at The City of Liverpool College
Humanities involves students in an exploration of issues that challenge human societies and extends their understanding of the world around them, in personal, local, national and global contexts. This course focuses on important contemporary issues such as global warming, terrorism, animal rights and abortion among many others.
There is a breadth of study within Humanities, which helps to create a rounded person with an enquiring mind. Humanities blends together elements of other subjects (mainly Citizenship, Geography, History, Religious Studies and Sociology) into a coherent, integrated course.
We will explore Culture & Beliefs asking what are the contrasting and common aspects of culture, looking at the factors that influence our cultures; we’ll also look at Conflict and Cooperation – specifically at the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the issue of freedoms, human rights and what factors may cause conflicts; we’ll analyse the causes of prejudice and discrimination in our society and within a wider global and historical context exploring the Holocaust. Issue such as the Environment and Global Inequality are a central focus of the Humanities GCSE as is the Family and Socialisation. These themes dovetail perfectly into Sociology and will benefit and complement those students who wish to go on to study sociology at A Level.
