In Hewitt College, we study the Later Modern Course (1815 to 1993). This is a wide course, offering many options. Dr. Eleanor Solon, Leaving Certificate textbook author, specialises in the following topics:
Section One, document-based questions on three case studies;
Section Two, Irish History (1870-1914 and 1912-1949);
and Section Three, European History (1870-1914).
The research topic project(allocated 20% of the overall marks) is fully completed in 5th year.
Complementary Subjects: English, Politics and Society (available September 2019), Religion.
At Hewitt College, we are finalising our roadmap to safely guide our students on their Leaving Certificate journey.
