What is the difference between Humanities and Humanities Additional?

Humanities Additional is only available to students who have Humanities or History at their other learning area eg. Humanities and Humanities Additional or History and Humanities Additional. As there is some similarity between History and Humanities, History students looking to take Humanities need to take Humanities Additional as this learning area specifically designed to meet the needs of these students. As outlined in handbook, Humanities Additional introduces Teacher Candidates who are studying the Humanities or History Learning Area with additional research and practice in the teaching of Humanities and Social Sciences in the context of Australian/Victorian Curricula and Frameworks. This subject will deepen students understanding of the nature of Humanities education for secondary school students across years 7-12 in Victoria.
