AS/A Level History
Mon Sep 07 2020
Day / Time
On this course, you'll study the history of a range of different periods and nations and analyse the political, social and economic trends and developments of these periods. This will enable you to develop a broad historical understanding along with independent research and discussion skills. If you enjoy reading, storytelling and past events and different cultures, an A Level in history could be for you.
What can I study alongside this A Level?
You can choose two other A Level subjects. Many students choose government and politics, English literature, English language, sociology or psychology depending on what university degree or career they have in mind.
Topics will include:
- The challenge and transformation of Britain c. 1851-1964
- The birth of the USA 1760-1801
Your skills and knowledge will be assessed in a variety of different ways:
- Written exams
- Frequent Topic Tests
- Mock Assessments
- Practical Assessments
You'll spend a year at each level; so a year studying AS Level and a year studying A Level.
By the end of the two years, you will have learned to evaluate and analyse information, work independently, weigh-up evidence and communicate complex ideas effectively. All these skills are recognised and valued by employers and universities, giving you a wide choice of university degrees or career opportunities to explore.
Typical careers following the study of history include work in the heritage and museum sector, archivist, teacher, journalism and political work.
