Course summary

Taught by one of the largest groups of specialist Scottish historians found at any university, this programme is world leading.

It offers an unrivalled range of courses that explore Scotland’s past across a broad period - from the early medieval period to contemporary developments - and Scotland’s place in a comparative and global context.

The examination of Scotland’s past has been at the centre of history teaching at the University since the Sir William Fraser Chair of Scottish History and Palaeography was established in 1901.

You’ll have access to some of the most impressive archival collections in the UK, including our Centre for Research Collections and the nationally significant collections held by the National Library of Scotland and the National Records of Scotland, both of which are nearby.

Career opportunities

Our students view the programme and a graduate degree from Edinburgh as an advanced qualification valued and respected by many employers.

Those students interested in long-term academic careers consider the MSc as preparation for a PhD.
