Modern History takes a period of upheaval in European society and provides learners with the opportunity to develop a coherent understanding of the past. The course develops an understanding of two key areas: a study of social change in England and Wales (c.1880-1980); The French Revolution (c.1774-1815).
History is an excellent basis for students who wish to proceed to Higher Education, and is one of the recognised ‘facilitating subjects’ that will help students gain access to top Russell group universities. A traditional and highly regarded qualification, it gives learners high-level skills and works well with most subjects. This course is particularly effective for those wishing to continue into history, law, journalism, archaeology, education, or politics.
