* If you are looking for the opportunity to pursue your own historical interests in a lively and friendly environment, led and supported by internationally-regarded historians, this programme is ideal for you.
* In the most recent independent review of research quality (RAE 2008), History at Glasgow was placed in the top two Scottish universities and in the top 10 of the prestigious UK Russell group.
* You will enjoy ready access to The Baillie Collection, our prized collection of printed medieval and modern sources in Scottish, Irish and English history. The collection also offers printed state papers, Historical Manuscript Commission publications and a select collection of modern monographs.
* Our programme has strong links with the University's Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, giving you access to primary source material including an enormous collection of anatomical and pathological specimens, coins, books, manuscripts and ethnography.
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 programme is built around a hands-on research training course, specialised courses on historical and theoretical themes, and other courses developing your technical skills and other abilities like languages and palaeography.
For your chosen programme, there will be a guided selection of courses that will provide you with 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 enquiry.
* Research resources and skills for historians
* Approaches to history.
