Course summary

The MA (Hons) in Scottish History is a four-year course run by the School of History. During your studies, you will learn to approach Scottish History from a number of different angles, exploring issues such as invasions, rivalries, lordship, tyranny, Enlightenment, social problems and culture, past and present. In the first two years, you will have the opportunity to study from a broad chronological span, from antiquity to the present day. You will study how economic, social and political issues and events have fundamentally shaped modern Scottish society, and gain valuable insight into ongoing tensions within the Union and the nature of modern Scottish identity. The skills you gain in analysing original and secondary source materials will prepare you to dive deeper into specialist topics during your third and fourth years. Breadth of knowledge and perspective are highly encouraged, and all students are expected to take some modules in other subject areas, for example English, Art History or Geography. Graduates in Scottish History from St Andrews can expect to have developed an appreciation for this country’s history, and be able to make connections across different time periods and between different cultures.
