Program overview

Exploring primarily contemporary or 19th and 20th century history, the course focuses on important issues such as war and conflict, immigration, racism, nationalism and empire. As students move through the three years, they will study more specific topics and the subject matter will become increasingly complex. Taught by experts in their own field, students will expand and develop a wide range of skills and learn how to absorb, understand and communicate complex information.
