ARCHAEOLOGY: - Archaeology is the study of how people in the past interacted with their world, through a detailed study of their objects, sites and monuments and the contemporary uses of heritage. You will have the opportunity to gain practical fieldwork skills in the UK and also abroad. Recently students have worked in Cyprus, Greece, France and Iceland. HISTORY: - The study of history is the study of change and continuity in human society through time. In this wide-ranging programme you will learn different approaches to studying the past as a way of understanding the present in its political, economic, ideological, social and cultural sense. History 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.
