The past is everywhere including the present. History enables us to understand our world and put the present in context. Students will study empires past and present, the media, slavery, wars, revolutions, poverty, human rights, dictators and democracies, as well as Australian history in a globalising world. The study of history is a good basis for understanding politics, heritage, and social and indigenous issues. It teaches analytical skills and a deep understanding of society.
