About

This History and Scottish History programme at The University of Edinburgh combines courses on Scottish history with those from the wider arena of historical study in an exciting joint programme. It enables you to combine a well-rounded and broadly-based training in history with a particular focus on Scotland’s past.

Overview

The University has always been one of the great centres for the study of Scottish history. It offers an unrivalled concentration of expertise in this field with courses covering the political, intellectual, economic, social and cultural history of Scotland from the medieval period to the recent past. This History and Scottish History programme fuses The University of Edinburgh’s excellence in this particular field with the wider offerings of its large and diverse history department.

Your study will seek to place Scotland’s development over time in the broadest context and make connections, comparisons and contrasts with the history of other countries. It will draw on the rich archival resources available within the University as well on the research materials afforded by the great collections based in the city, including the National Library, National Records, National Galleries and National Museums of Scotland.

Career opportunities

You will gain key transferable skills that employers are looking for. In particular you will learn to develop intellectually rigorous arguments, based on sound independent research and analysis.

You will also learn to compile and critically evaluate large amounts of complex and conflicting evidence, and to formulate and present your views coherently and cogently, both orally and in writing.

The research and analytical skills history students develop can be used in any research-based career. They can also be applied to careers including journalism, museum and heritage work, public relations, the diplomatic service or teaching.

Previous graduates have gone on to pursue a wide variety of careers, in the media, politics, civil service, heritage, law, business, and finance, to name just a few.

Programme Structure

  • Year 1

You will take a course on the history of Edinburgh from the Iron Age to the present day, and a compulsory course in historical skills that engages with broader questions about the nature of history as an academic discipline and the methods and skills required for historical research.

  • Year 2

You will take a course on historiography and a course that provides a wide-ranging overview of the history of Scotland from the early modern period to the twentieth century.

  • Year 3

You will take two compulsory courses in historical theory and methodology and study four from a wide range of specialist option courses, including Scottish history.

Depending on the courses you choose to study in Years 1 and 2, you may have the option to choose one on a subject other than history.

  • Year 4

You will study two year-long special subject courses, and engage in independent research to produce an honours dissertation on a topic substantially of your own devising.
