Modern Studies

Welcome to the Modern Studies department 

                  

Why choose Modern Studies?

Modern Studies helps you to understand the most important issues in the world today. It helps you gather information about these issues, evaluate the information you have and, most importantly, it helps you make your own mind up and come to your own conclusions about these issues.It is often said in Modern Studies that as long as you can support your argument with facts, you are never wrong! For example, what is your opinion on the war against terrorism?

Modern Studies is an excellent qualification for higher education, good preparation for work and, of course, good preparation for life.There are many university courses and careers that Modern Studies can lead to including Lawyer, Doctor, Journalist, Accountant, Politician, Sociology, Solicitor, Personnel, Army, Navy, Airforce, Nursing, Civil Service, Psychology, Police Officer and many many more!
