RATIONALE

Through the advanced study of history, students should acquire the skills and knowledge that will extend the scope of their general education and provide a foundation for the professional study of history. The course of study prescribed in this 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 and, as such, will contribute to the development of the Ideal Caribbean Person, as outlined in The Caribbean Education Strategy (2000).

The discipline of history consists of three aspects – its content, its organising principles, and its methods of enquiry. The syllabus seeks to promote these aspects of the historian’s craft and has been organised accordingly. Its content emphasises the historical experience of the peoples of the Caribbean in the context of the Atlantic region.

AIMS

This course aims to:

  1. develop an understanding of the Caribbean world by locating it within the larger history of the Atlantic region;
