Studying history and philosophy together gives you a wide range of modules to choose from.
We teach social, cultural, and political history from the early modern period through to the contemporary period, focusing in particular on the British Isles, Europe, the Americas, Africa, and India.
You'll use primary sources from the start, analysing various kinds of historical evidence, including written and oral materials, maps, visual images, feature films, art, and music. You'll consider how the use of sources and media representation inform our reconstructions of the past.
A history degree is an extremely valuable qualification. It provides a solid foundation in analytical and communication skills, both highly sought after by employers.
The history programme at Dundee is designed to produce confident, intellectually-engaged graduates who can think creatively and independently, ask incisive questions, articulate their ideas, and solve complex problems.
