Middle Years Programme curriculum
Humanities has the potential to consist of a broad range of traditionally separate subjects, such as:
Schools may choose to teach these subjects as distinct courses or as one integrated course, and may vary the structure for different year groups.
Within the aims and objectives of this subject group, there are concepts that students must address and skills that must be developed over the five years of the programme. These include:
- the concepts of time, place and space, change, systems and global awareness
- technical, analytical, problem-solving and investigative skills.
The primary aim of the humanities course is to develop the understanding and application of concepts and skills rather than prescribe and assess content.
