This course covers the history of Scotland, Europe, India, Africa, and North America, from medieval times to the present day. It draws on the activity of our research clusters in global history [link to centre], Scottish history [link to centre], and public history.You'll be able to study political, cultural, military, economic, and social history. You can explore different historical issues including social justice, and topics such as crime and policing, or the historical study of crime fiction and forensics, which cross over with other academic departments.You will also gain specialist skills to enhance your employability. For example, we offer documentary making. As part of our public history theme, you'll have the opportunity to write a script for a historical documentary, or to film a short documentary. Other skills training includes public outreach, research ethics, research using databases, and the work of archivists. We have a substantial body of archival material and a team of archivists to work with.If you are hoping to continue to a PhD, we offer extensive support in writing a PhD application. Our core module, Skills and Sources, includes sessions on how to write grant proposals. When you come to write your own PhD proposal, we will support you every step of the way.You'll complete a dissertation, and this will deepen your historiographical knowledge and and develop your advanced historical research and conceptual skills. This is particularly important should you proceed to doctoral study.We offer a regular postgraduate forum, visiting speakers and an annual postgraduate conference.

About this university
For students travelling from outside the UK, the International Advice Service is available to help them with all aspects of the transition. They offer confidential advice and help on matters such as immigration and visas, working during and after studies as well as community group information and links to international hospitality schemes. There is support for international families as well as arranging cultural and social events during the year aimed primarily at international students. They are based in the Enquiry Centre on Campus Green or via email. Students are represented by the University's Student Representative Council while the Students Association organises the societies, clubs and organisations outside the classroom. It is unusual because it isn't a member of the National Union of Students due to cost and political considerations. The union is based in Airlie Place, at the centre of the main campus and has a bar, nightclub and refectory on site. There are 42 clubs associated with the Sports Union at the university and these have annual award ceremonies as well as an annual Ball. A multi-million pound redevelopment saw a number of new facilities for sports around the university including the first UK gym with mp3/mp4 compatible personal viewing screens.
