6.     前景
高中的歷史研習為準備升讀大學的學生提供了健全的概念架構、對二十世紀的認識,以及一些有助於他們繼續修讀感興趣的人文學科、社會科學乃至工商管理等課程的技能。高中歷史課程也可以幫助學生培養獨立及批判性思考能力,資料分析、搜集、組織以至編寫能力,使他們能應付要求高階思維的職業, 如分析員、編輯及記者等。另外, 歷史研習能發展學生的時序觀念、世界視野及批判性思考, 對他們修讀其他學科,特別是高中課程必修的通識科或應用學習課程也有幫助。
「選修部分」的設計, 亦同樣可以照顧學生的多樣性。每一個選修項目代表一種歷史研習的方式,學生可根據能力及興趣或將來進修、就業的傾向,選取最適合及相關的項目來研習。那些想對二十世紀某段歷史時期有較深入了解及認知,有興趣從政、入讀教育、社會、政治與行政、新聞或法律學系的,可選修「比較歷史」或「歷史議題探究」。「本地文化承傳研習」則能為學生提供研習本地社區文化的機會, 為他們日後入讀考古學及人類學或修讀有關文化、文物及博物館管理等課程,或投身與文物有關的行業做好準備。
 
The senior secondary curriculum enables the students to further develop an enquiring mind,an attitude of respect for and tolerance of different opinions, and a sense of balancedjudgment and objectivity. The study of history in senior secondary schools also provides prospective university studentswith a sound conceptual framework and knowledge of the 20th century world, as well as theskills needed for studying subjects of personal interest to them in the fields of humanities,social sciences or business management. The content knowledge, critical and independent thinking as well as analytical skills students acquire in this subject prepare them well for choosing programmes offered by university, such as Sociology, Government and Public Affairs, Journalism or Law. They will also be able to enrol in courses thatdemand research skills, such as in the fields of Heritage Studies, Archaeology and Anthropology in their university studies.
