Course summary

The History programme at Edinburgh reflects the strengths of our History department, which is one of the largest and most diverse in the UK. Our academics are internationally recognised experts in the field, whose teaching is directly informed by their research. We offer an exceptionally wide range of courses, covering historical periods from the early Middle Ages to the most recent past; geographical regions including Britain and Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas; and a rich variety of approaches to the past, including political history, cultural history, social history, economic history, intellectual history, gender history, and global and transnational history. Edinburgh provides an ideal environment in which to study history. We are situated in the heart of the historic city centre, a short walk away from the Castle and the winding streets of the medieval Old Town. The University has excellent resources for the study of history, including access to unique archival sources within the Library’s Special Collections. Historians also benefit from the research materials afforded by the great collections based in the city, including the National Library, National Records, National Galleries and National Museum of Scotland.
