Leaving Cert History is split into two main parts: Ireland, and Europe and the Wider World. Within each of these parts are different topics, and within these topics are different sections.
Unlike Junior Cert, there's no set curriculum for 5th and 6th Year. Your class can focus on whatever topics you want in whatever order you want (at your teacher's discretion, of course).
You must study two topics each from Modern Ireland and from Modern Europe and the Wider World. One of the topics will be a prescribed topic for the Document Question in the Leaving Cert exam.
Upcoming prescribed topics are:
2017: Dictatorship and Democracy in Europe, 1920-45
2018: Government, Economy and Society in the Republic of Ireland, 1949-89
2019: Government, Economy and Society in the Republic of Ireland, 1949-89
This section is still under development.
