Junior Certificate - History

Junior Certificate - History

The Junior Cycle history course is a wide-ranging and comprehensive programme, spanning 9,000 years of world history. Beginning with our roots in ancient Ireland, the course weaves an intricate tapestry of the past throughout the millennia, ending at the close of the 20th Century.

A focus on both cultural and political history allows students to explore the ordinary people of the past alongside the ‘big’ events and ideas of history, helping to develop an appreciation for our cultural heritage as well as developing an understanding of key concepts, such as change and continuity, cause and consequence and historical significance.

The course aims to provide students not only with a broad understanding of our past, but also with an understanding of the nature of history and the difficulties faced by historians in reconstructing the past. Students will practice source analysis, synthesising information and thinking critically and independently in order to make reasoned judgements. A commitment to objectivity and fairness is promoted throughout the course, in turn helping students to become more active and engaged as democratic citizens.
