The programme draws on the largest group of historians with Scottish interests in any UK HE institution.
Central to the programme are courses on all periods of Scottish history based on a wide variety of themes and methodological approaches. Many courses adopt a comparative framework and seek to place Scotland's historical experience in the widest possible context.
The programme provides an excellent academic experience for those who wish to undertake a taught MSc course at postgraduate level, for those who require the training and confidence that the MSc degree provides as the basis for further postgraduate study, or as a foundation for careers in archival or museum work, the cultural heritage industry or education.
