The examination of Scotland’s past has been at the centre of history teaching at the University of Edinburgh since the prestigious Sir William Fraser Chair of Scottish History and Palaeography was established in 1901.
This Scottish History programme from The University of Edinburgh continues that tradition, drawing on the impressive expertise of our academics, who form the largest group of historians specialising in Scottish interest found at a UK university.
Thanks to our unique academic strength, you’ll be able to choose from an unrivalled range of courses that explore Scotland’s past across a very broad chronological period – from the Roman occupation of Scotland to post-Union through to Scottish diaspora and contemporary developments – and place its history in a comparative and global context.
Along the way, you’ll have access to some of the most impressive archival collections in the UK, all located either within the University or nearby.
You will have a variety of career options open to you on completion of your degree. You may wish to continue with graduate study to PhD level or work towards qualifications in related professional disciplines such as museum or archive work.
