Our pathway structure allows you to tailor your degree to match an interest in one of the following fields
* Medieval history
* Modern and late modern history
* Scottish history
* Social and cultural history
* Gender history
* Military history.
Each pathway is built around a hands-on research training course, a core course on how the discipline has evolved and other courses focusing on your technical skills and other abilities like languages and palaeography.
For your chosen pathway, there will be a guided selection of courses that will provide you with the specialised knowledge in that field. You will be taught through a series of seminars and workshops. Internationally recognised historians give guest lectures throughout the year.
These courses are taught in History, Economic and Social History (in the College of Social Sciences), and by related Subject Areas in the School of Humanities (Archaeology, Celtic, Classics) and the College of Arts (such as English Language and French).
In the final part of the programme, you will select a specialised topic and conduct original primary source research for your dissertation. You are supported in your research and writing up by an assigned supervisor with expertise in your field of inquiry.
* Research resources and skills for historians
* Approaches to history.
Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification (for example, GPA 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified.
