Modern History

Modern History is a branch of history that
focuses on the study of people from a range of societies over the past 200 years.  This subject seeks to examine some of the most significant events of the Modern Age, yet it does much more than ask students to remember dates.  Students are encouraged to question and challenge the way societies have operated in the past. 
By evaluating past human behaviour, students will be able to recognise bias, injustice and distortion of the truth as well as make decisions about values like honesty, courage and justice.  Therefore, because our present is a direct consequence of our past, this course should make the world today more comprehensible to students, developing their capacities to participate effectively as informed global citizens.
