Junior Cycle History

The study of History at junior cycle aims to enable students to develop the necessary conceptual understanding, disciplinary skills and subject knowledge to investigate the actions of people in the past and to come to a deeper understanding of the human condition. Students also come to see the world, and their place in it, from an historical perspective; and understand how the people and events of the past have shaped the contemporary world.The focus of study is on three strands: the Nature of History; the History of Ireland; and the History of Europe and the Wider World.
