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. HISTORY OF ART: - History of art seeks to understand how and why paintings, sculptures, buildings and works in a variety of media come to look the way they do. You will benefit from the extensive collections of the University’s library and the resources of the Hunterian, the University’s museum and art gallery, which feature the world-famous Hunter, Whistler and Mackintosh collections.
