Postgraduate taught degrees

History at Glasgow offers an outstanding learning experience, working with world-leading experts with close connections to the libraries, archives and museums of the University and the city.

The University of Glasgow has taught History since 1897. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), we were ranked joint 4th in the UK for research excellence and impact.

Our Masters programmes cover all periods from early medieval to late modern, and emphasise Scotland, Britain, Europe and the Americas, with an increasingly global perspective.

Postgraduate teaching is conducted mainly in small-group seminars, discussing topics directed by cutting-edge research. Our research community is dynamic and supportive and you will be encouraged to take part in many research-led initiatives.

Our programmes combine a core research training course and a range of specialised historical, theoretical and skills-based courses. You will also complete a primary source research dissertation.
