Unit Code: HIS702
Unit Title: Contemporary World History
This Unit offers students the opportunity to analyse causes, effects and the impacts of what happened in the 20th Century. It examines several most important changes ending with the aftermath of the cold war. Special attention will be on the impact of these important changes on Solomon Islands politics and governance during the post-colonial era and how it shaped the Solomon Islands as a modern state. On that note, students will develop their historical content knowledge about the contemporary world and will confidently be able to teach world history in the form 6 and form 7 levels in Solomon Islands secondary schools.
