Program overview

On this course, you’ll explore both the myths and the realities of Scottish History, unpicking the events that shaped a nation – from the wars of William Wallace to Scotland’s unprecedented impact on the wider world. You can expect in-depth insight into every aspect of Scottish History - political, social, environmental and economic – all of which will deepen your understanding of present-day Scotland at the same time. Scottish History may be taken as a Single Honours degree, as well as in a number of Combined degrees in a Scottish History stream of the History degree. Students take Scottish History plus two other subjects in semesters 1-3. In semesters 4-6 you will normally take at least six modules in Scottish History. In Semesters 7 and 8 Honours students take a ‘special subject’ involving the use of printed documentary collections and other source material. Single Honours students also write a supervised dissertation of between 14,000 and 16,000 words on a chosen research topic.
