University of Aberdeen

History

Established in 1898, the History department offers a warm welcome to new students and genuine commitment to providing postgraduate teaching and supervision informed by top-quality research. We offer expertise in a very wide range of subjects from Classical to Modern times, with many staff at the cutting edge of their respective fields. With a vibrant research culture, the department uses a range of research centres (for example, Irish and Scottish Studies; Scandinavian Studies; Global Empires) not just to facilitate research by staff but also to support its large postgraduate community, for example with regular research workshops. Our work is reflected in the achievements of recent graduates that include awards of prestigious fellowships at the Institute of Historical Research. Likewise our experienced and committed teachers and supervisors will strive to enrich your experience at the University of Aberdeen and enable you to realise your ambition.
