Welcome to Diploma History
Why study History?
The aims of the History course at both SL and HL are to promote an understanding of History as a discipline, including the nature and diversity of its sources, methods and interpretations. It encourages an understanding of the present through critical reflection of the past. History encourages an understanding of the impact of Historical developments at national, regional, and international levels. History allows students to develop an awareness of their own identity through the study of the Historical experiences of different cultures.
