Cambridge IGCSE Subject Briefs: History

Choosing the right subjects can set up a student for life. Make sure your child starts the IB on the right foot by speaking with an EIB Consultant to pick the perfect subjects.

Cambridge IGCSE Subject Briefs: History. This subject brief covers the History syllabus.

The Cambridge IGCSE History Course is situated in modern history, looking at some of the major international issues of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries including the First World War, the Communist Revolutions in both China and Russia, and the civil rights movement in the USA. The course aims to place emphasis on historical knowledge, the use of historical evidence, and the skills required for historical research. Students are taught to appreciate multiple forms of historical analysis – such as cause and effect, continuity and change and similarity and difference. Broadly, the course aims to encourage students to have an international understanding of different contemporaneous historical events, encouraging the pursuit of personal interest in the subject.
