Through the study of Modern History, students can understand why our modern world is the way that it is.

Modern History has the ability to improve citizens’ open and reasoned debate with the wider community, increase effective participation with in society, enhance the democratic processes, and strengthen individual and social wellbeing. 

Cooperative and competitive processes shape societies, and understanding these processes is central to explaining social behaviour and to evaluating the performance of a social system. The social sciences equip people with tools and strategies to improve social processes and their outcomes at the collective and individual levels.
