History

The course's pathway structure allows students to tailor the degree to match an interest in 1 of the following fields: medieval history; modern and late modern history; Scottish history; social and cultural history; gender history; and military history. Each programme is built around a hands-on research training course, specialised courses on historical and theoretical themes, and other courses focusing on technical skills and other abilities like languages and palaeography. For each student's chosen programme, there is a guided selection of courses that provide specialised knowledge in that field. Students are taught through a series of seminars and workshops.
