In the study of Modern History, at Stage1, 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 impact that these developments and movements had on people’s ideas, perspectives, and circumstances. They investigate ways in which people, groups and institutions challenge structures, social organisations and economic models to transform societies.
Topics that could be covered [2 will be selected]
Students who complete Modern History in Stage 1 will develop skills that can lead them to study any of the Humanities subjects in Stage 2 such as: Modern History, Legal Studies, Aboriginal Studies, Society & Culture and Women’s Studies.
