Modern History


Board Endorsed Course (ATAR)

The Modern History course is designed for students who are interested in the world around them, and those who like to question why it is the way it is. It challenges them to think critically about the technological, economic, political and moral changes of the 19th and 20th centuries. Students investigate the forces that have shaped the world, through the analysis and interpretation of sources. It fosters a critical approach to understanding events, issues and interpretations as well as the effective communication of accounts conveying ideas, judgements and evidence.


Further information is available on the NESA website.


If a student qualifies, the Modern History Life Skills Course is available in mainstream classes. More information on Life Skills courses can be found here.
