History Diploma Level 3

Course Synopsis
This Ascentis Quality Assured Level 3 Diploma in History. By the end of your course, your knowledge and awareness of history will be significantly enhanced. You should also have developed your ability to analyse information and to communicate detailed and complex arguments effectively.

History, as its name suggests, is a study of the past. It is certainly true to say that in order to understand the conflicts and difficulties of the present world you need to understand what has happened over previous years. Many of today's politicians and world leaders are well aware of the events of the past and often use them as guidelines in dealing with present problems and crises. History encourages you to absorb and learn key facts and data before analysing which pieces of information are the most important and most significant. A key skill of any historian is to make an informed judgement on an important historical issue having weighed up all of the information and evidence available.

This course focuses on 20th century History, specifically in relation to the USA, the Soviet Union and Britain. Key historical figures covered by the course include Churchill, Stalin, Kennedy and Reagan.
