Stage 1 Modern History

Stage 1 Modern History will be taught for the first time in 2017.

Stage 1 Modern History may be undertaken as a 10-credit or a 20-credit subject.

In the study of Modern History at Stage 1, students explore changes within the world since 1750, examining developments and movements of significance, the ideas that inspired them, and their short- and long-term consequences on societies, systems, and individuals.

Students explore the impacts that these developments and movements had on people’s ideas, perspectives, and circumstances. They investigate ways in which people, groups, and institutions challenge political structures, social organisation, and economic models to transform societies.
