Throughout History and Law (Hons) programme at the University of Strathclyde, you'll receive excellent training in areas such as problem-solving, communication, research methods and interpretation.
Our classes cover some of the most important and interesting historical periods at home and abroad, including Scotland’s ‘Highland Problem’ in the 16th century, Slavery in World History and Cold War Europe, 1945-1991.
There are a number of ways you can study Law at Strathclyde, one such way being the BA degree in combination with another subject.
Law is concerned with the study of the obligations, duties and rights which every member of society has in relation to one another and to the state. Please note that studying Law within the BA degree will not qualify you for entry to the legal profession. For professional qualifications in Law students follow the LLB programme.
The study of Law is regarded not as purely vocational, but part of a broader education. Our BA degrees in Humanities & Social Sciences are initially broad-based. In Year 1, you'll study three subjects, including your chosen subject(s).
All Single Honours History students, and many Joint Honours students, complete a 10,000-word dissertation, in which they demonstrate their research skills on a topic of their own choosing. The dissertation draws on scholarly literature and as much primary source material (documents, for example) as students can acquire. Honours students often say that this is the most satisfying part of their History degree.
