Program Details



History is the continuous, systematic study, through research, of events over time, that are of importance to communities, societies, countries and ultimately, the human race. The CAPE History Syllabus seeks to enhance the interests, capabilities, skills and attitudes of students to enable them to develop as autonomous human beings capable of acting as rational and ethical individuals, and as responsible members of their community. The selection, structure and content of themes and modules have been informed by a desire to promote an understanding of the historical as well as the contemporary relationships among the nations and societies on the Atlantic shores. The syllabus has been organised to enhance the in-depth study of themes that will enable persons to acquire and practice the skills of a historian.


Candidate MUST have Five (5) subjects at CXC General Proficiency including English Language.
