NCEA Level 3 History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: G. Hampton

Recommended Prior Learning

Previous experience in Year 11 and Year 12 History recommended.

History is the study of past events connected with particular places and people. History helps students to understand people and societies, to investigate their own moral standing on issues and gives perspectives on what it means to be a responsible citizen. 

In History students develop skills in assessing evidence and conflicting interpretations of events and people, critical thinking and the ability to gather, analyse and communicate information. 

At Level 3 students will focus on aspects of NZ History and contested historical events. 


  • Controversial New Zealand Court cases
  • Contested events, including Comfort Women
  • Genocide - Armenia

This course is a University Entrance approved subject.
