If you wish to specialise, you can select Scottish Historical Studies, or cover a wider range of topics on our History degree. Whichever course you choose, you'll benefit from interaction with experts who are at the forefront of their field.
Our emphasis is on 'doing history'. Our students use primary sources (original documents) from archives and libraries right from the start.
At Dundee we believe in research-led teaching. That is to say, our lecturers, are internationally-recognised experts in their fields who create modules around their areas of interest or the historical problems on which they are working. We regularly update our curriculum to reflect cutting-edge research.
