Course summary

Uncover Scotland' s past and help shape its future, while gaining skills that you can apply to any culture. This programme combines two related yet distinct approaches to the study of human cultures, past and present. **Scottish Ethnology**Ethnology is the discipline which studies the culture and traditions of developed societies and is sometimes described as being at the intersection where history and anthropology meet. While commonly offered in universities across Europe, this is the only full undergraduate programme of its kind available within the UK. Focusing on Scotland, but introducing comparative material from elsewhere, you will study the varying ways in which a modern European nation expresses itself culturally, through such forms as its customs, beliefs, social organisation, language, music and song.This programme explores questions like:* How do these help to create and shape identity in the modern world?* How do we use and make sense of the past from within our present?* How can this understanding help us to shape our future?Working with a range of rich materials, from traditional archives to modern media and digital data, you will develop the practical and intellectual tools to help navigate and influence contemporary culture and society in an increasingly globalised world. **Archaeology**While the ethnology component allows for the study of the recent past and the present, your studies in archaeology take you a good deal further back in time, and help you to develop a parallel range of skills in the interpretation of social and cultural change. The programme also enables you to appreciate:* the material basis of archaeology* the contested nature of objects* the social relationships that are spun around them * the people who use and interpret them
