History and Modern Studies in the BGE

S2 - The Rise of Hitler and the Holocaust

Pupils who choose to study History and/or Modern Studies in S3 will be in the department for two periods a week per subject, and will study the following topics:
Case Study – The Titanic
Slavery to Free at Last
World Powers - China
World Powers – the USA
‘Street Law’ – a programme delivered through cooperation with the Law Society of Scotland
Pupils studying Modern Studies in S3 will also carry out a skills based project.
