If you are interested in Scottish and Highlands and Islands history, then the BA (Hons) Scottish History degree is exactly what you're looking for. Throughout the course, you will investigate the cultural, political, social and economic links between Scotland and the northern European and northern Atlantic regions. In the first and second years, you will follow a traditional broad approach to the study of history from the medieval to the modern period. In years three and four you will have the opportunity to examine in-depth specific places, periods and themes which reflect the research specialisms of the expert staff at the university's Centre for History. Over two-thirds of the research conducted by the Centre for History was rated at 4 and 3*, indicating 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent', in the latest assessment of UK university research quality. The impact of our research on the broader economy and society was ranked joint 8th, higher than Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh. We are also the highest ranked new History department in the UK.
