CCEA qualifications in History are available at Entry Level, GCSE and GCE.
The study of history is about more than memorising dates and learning about the actions of famous figures from the past. It is a chronicle of human behaviour: a real-life drama full of villains and heroes. It examines the circumstances that led to the transformation of people and places.
Studying history gives us opportunities to better understand our past and avoid repeating the same mistakes. History holds the answers to how and why our lives are shaped as they are today. Studying history develops the skills of analysis and evaluation, which are essential in decision making. This wide and varied skillset helps students to keep their career options open.
