- Study history from a variety of perspectives, including political, social, economic and cultural, so that they can appreciate the diversity of the societies studied, and the experiences of the people in these societies
- Be given the opportunity to study the 20th Century in both breadth and depth
- Study the history of Britain, Europe, particularly the USA and Germany, as well the world in the 20th Century.
