History Extension is a 1 unit course for HSC only. This is a Board Developed course.
The History Extension course is about the nature of history, and how and why historical interpretations are developed from different perspectives over time. It offers a higher level of challenge than the Ancient History and Modern History courses with its greater emphasis on historiography.
The History Extension course requires students to examine the way history is constructed and the role of historians. Students explore problems and issues associated with the construction of history through sampling the works of various writers, historians and others involved in the practice of history from ancient times to the present day.
Students apply their understanding and skills of historical inquiry by designing and conducting their own historical investigation. Click Here for the full course details.
