Over two years, students acquire an in-depth knowledge and understanding of both the UK and the US political systems. Students develop good analytical, debating and essay writing skills. They are encouraged to approach each topic with an open mind and to examine contemporary issues from more than one viewpoint. The course builds upon the skills acquired in Humanities subjects at KS3 and KS4, such as essay writing, debating an argument and analysing an issue from different viewpoints.
