Overview

The History programme from University of Glasgow hosts the Centre for Gender History which works closely with external organisations in the field of women’s and gender issues.

You’ll be able to take courses offered by members of the Scottish Centre for War Studies which offers expertise in war and conflict from medieval times to the present day.

You will take two core courses covering Scottish and Medieval history over a broad time span. Between them, these courses introduce you to the study of history first in a national Scottish and then a broader European context. Forces driving continuity and change in Scottish and European politics, society, economy and culture are assessed over time.
