History

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) history course is a world history course based on a comparative and

multiperspective approach to history. It involves the study of a variety of types of history, including political, economic,

social and cultural, and provides a balance of structure and flexibility. The course emphasizes the importance of

encouraging students to think historically and to develop historical skills as well as gaining factual knowledge. It puts a

premium on developing the skills of critical thinking, and on developing an understanding of multiple interpretations of

history. In this way, the course involves a challenging and demanding critical exploration of the past.
