By combining the two distinct but complementary subjects of Scottish History and Politics, this joint honours degree will give you a range of future employment, advanced study or research opportunities. You will study the two disciplines, based in the Highlands and Islands, yet with an international approach that will prepare you for life beyond university. As you progress through the course, you will choose from a combination of modules, equally balanced between Scottish history and politics. You will study the history and politics of Scotland, Britain, Europe, and the wider world. 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.
