This course introduces you to some of the most important subjects and problems in British and European economic, political, and social history of the last 200 years. It’s a great way to understand how the world we live in has evolved and provides some fantastic opportunities for you to build your own arguments around the interpretations of our past.

A level History is made up of three components. The first is a breadth study, looking at the Tudors and the changes that took place over that period. Component two is a depth study, looking at post-1945 America, and the final component is the coursework module, where students will study Russia between 1855 and 1964.

You will develop your ability to analyse sources, develop arguments, research and construct essays, problem-solve, and think critically.

Progression routes
The critical analysis skills that you will develop enable progression on to careers such as law, journalism, marketing and business, management, and teaching. Alternatively, you could pursue specialist occupations such as archaeology, historical research, and museum curation.
