History, along with mathematics and biology, are the three subjects taught in English for those students enrolled in the immersion “E” program at the Gymnasium Muttenz. The content of the history immersion lessons is comparable to the regular classes in German, yet the resources used are in English, unless analysing primary sources that were originally written in German. This program provides students with intensive study within the discipline history and enhances their English skills in this field.
In year two, students attend an interdisciplinary project in addition to their standard two history lessons. In year three, students attend two history lessons and one political studies lesson. Within the realm of political studies, students gain an insight into Swiss politics and current political events in Europe.
