Implementation Guidelines

Compulsory units


Prerequisites for the course or units within the course

Negotiated Study 0.5 and Independent Research Unit 0.5 have a prerequisite of 3 standard units (or equivalent). All other units do not have prerequisites.

Arrangements for students who are continuing to study a course in this subject

Students who have studied the previous History course type 1 or type 2, may not repeat any of the units covering equivalent content.

Units from other courses

Up to a maximum of 1.0 units from Politics may be counted towards a History major, provided that there is no duplication of content.

Negotiated Units

All units have an element of negotiation within them, but the content for the Independent Study Units 1.0 and Negotiated Study unit 0.5 are wholly negotiated.

Relationship with other courses

Students may use 2 units from this History course with 2 units from the Politics course, written under the History framework, to achieve a major in the Interdisciplinary History course. See Interdisciplinary History for more details.

Relationship with courses at other colleges/special institutions (optional)

This course has been written to allow students undertaking International Baccalaureate History to complete a major in this course.

There are other units which overlap these periods of History and could be studied as part of the specialty. It is vital that care is taken in selecting units to ensure duplication of content does not occur. See the individual units for information on duplication.

The Ancient History units are written in a chronological order. The first two units deal primarily with archaeology and anthropology. Colleges should consider chronological development of civilisation but should choose a pattern of units to suit the needs of their students.
