The United States Studies Centre has a strong history of engaging with high schools students and teachers across Sydney.
America: Prophecy, Power, Politics is a Board of Studies endorsed HSC course that offers Year 11 and Year 12 students the opportunity to develop university-standard writing and critical thinking skills, and earn credit towards a tertiary degree.
This competition sees teams from NSW high schools debating issues pertinent to the future of the United States. The competition commences mid-year with the grand final at the University of Sydney’s Open Day in late August.
Run over two days in the July school holidays, these study days enable high school students undertaking the American History modules of the HSC Modern History curriculum to gain a deeper understanding of the subject and experience the style of teaching used at the undergraduate level.
We can arrange for our academics to visit your school to present on a topic associated with the United States. Our staff are also available to discuss study options and what it's like to be a student on campus.
New for 2017! The USSC has partnered with the Sydney University United Nations Society to deliver in-school Model United Nations (MUN) programs. Mixing politics, geography and debating, these fun, interactive sessions can be delivered within your classroom. Contact us to find out more.
