Economic & Social History at Glasgow

River Clyde at sunset

Economic and Social History at Glasgow offers an accessible and stimulating approach to understanding economic and social change. 

We are concerned with explaining how people in the past have lived and worked, and how this past experience has shaped the development of the 21st century world. We represent the historical branch of the social sciences, using the methods and expertise of a wide range of disciplines, including history, economics and sociology.

Themes we explore with our students include:

  • How economies grow and change over time;
  • How people influence economic change and are affected by it;
  • How social structures, including class and gender identities and relations, change over time.

In our Level 1 and Level 2 courses we examine these themes in a variety of national and international contexts, mainly in the period from 1750 to the present. Topics covered include:

  • Globalisation and Migration
  • Industrialisation and economic growth
  • Welfare State and Public Health
  • Economic and Social Dimensions of First and Second World Wars
  • Gender Politics and Women’s Rights
  • Social Class and Inequalities
  • Employers and Trade Unions
  • Deindustrialisation and its social consequences.

In Honours (years 3 and 4) students choose from a variety of courses that are linked to the research expertise of staff, with particular strengths in the areas of gender history, medical history, business history, and labour history. In the Junior Honours (year 3) core course students work in small groups on research projects, supervised by staff, and have the opportunity to explore their own specialist interests with the Senior Honours (year 4) dissertation. There is an emphasis on critical thinking and the development of a variety of personal and intellectual skills.

“The course is diverse and opens up new avenues of research. Loved it all.”

ESH student testimonial, NSS

“My course has given me a much better way of approaching problems, not just related to my course, but problems which I meet with from day-to-day. I feel that I have been able to hone valuable skills in writing and reading, which have greatly increased the efficiency with which I work, and also the accuracy and relevance.”

ESH student testimonial, NSS

Our approach of small group teaching: at all levels and especially in the Honours programme; helps to create a strong sense of community, and we work hard to ensure that our students feel valued and supported:

“In ESH the staff are always available and willing to help the students. The courses offered provide a good variety from which to choose. During my dissertation, my supervisor was extremely helpful and supportive throughout. This sort of dedication is seen throughout ESH.”

ESH student testimonial, NSS

“With ESH there is a friendly and familiar atmosphere... I feel like if I had ever had any major problems there were people I could have contacted who would have helped me.”

Special Glasgow feature

Glasgow Q-Step Degrees

The University of Glasgow's Q-Step Centre offers programmes which develop your quantitative skills, or in other words, your ability to handle data and use numerical evidence.

Developing quantitative skills and your confidence in using them, will really enhance your insight and understanding of the key issues you encounter in your chosen field of study.

The University of Glasgow Q-Step Centre offers five degree programmes that integrate quantitative skills training within the School of Social and Political Sciences. All of these programmes aim to engage you with meaningful ways of understanding the social world.

We will teach you how to understand and analyse quantitative results, as well as how to present your own, and how to discuss their substantive implications. These are essential skills for understanding quantitative evidence presented in academic literature, but also for interrogating data in public media and government reports.

Around one quarter of your study time will be devoted to quantitative methods. And our degrees also offer you the possibility to gain valuable experience by participating in internships with selected high-profile employers.

MA (SocSci) Economic & Social History with Quantitative Methods

Economic and Social History is the study of the way societies change in their economic activities and social organisation. You will study how people in the past lived and worked, and how this has affected the development of today’s world.

You will have the opportunity to apply to study abroad. There are currently two options available: the Erasmus+ Programme and the International Exchange Programme. See Study abroad.

About Higher entry requirements

SQA Highers

The S5 Standard Academic Entry Requirements represent the grades which, if attained in addition to successfully meeting mandatory subject requirements and any non-academic entry requirements (interviews, auditions, aptitude tests), will normally result in an offer being made. Students must achieve the standard entry requirements by the end of S5 (cumulative S4 and S5).

The S5 Minimum Academic Entry Requirements represent the minimum grades which an applicant must have obtained by the end of S5 (cumulative S4 and S5) in order for them to be considered for a conditional offer based on S6 results. Not all applicants who achieve the Minimum Academic Entry Requirements will be made an offer. This will depend on the number of applications we have received for a degree programme and the number of applicants who have met the Standard Academic Entry Requirements.

Where an applicant is made a conditional offer based on S6 results, the S6 Standard Academic Entry Requirements represent the cumulative grades that must be attained by the end of S6, in addition to meeting any mandatory subject and non-academic requirements. All degree programmes allow applicants to “double count” Highers and Advanced Highers in the same subject when calculating cumulative grades. A Grade B in an Advanced Higher will be regarded as another Grade A at Higher Level and a Grade C at Advanced Higher will be regarded as another Grade B at Higher Level. All degree programmes require grades in a minimum of four different subjects.

Advanced Highers

Advanced Highers are a qualification of increased importance to the University, which recognises that applicants with these qualifications find the transition to university easier and perform better in their university exams. Many of our degrees specify Advanced Highers as part of the S6 Entry Requirements.

If a school is unable to offer specific Advanced Higher subjects applicants will be made bespoke offers which will normally require the applicant to attain additional relevant Highers in S6.

Adjusted Entry Requirements

We adjust the Standard Academic Entry Requirements for eligible applicants who complete one of our widening participation pre-entry programmes. Criteria for eligibility include attending a Scottish target secondary school, living in a priority Scottish postcode area, current or previous experience of living in care or estrangement from family support.

Please contact the Recruitment and International Office: Elaine.Shortt@glasgow.ac.uk

If you require a Tier 4 student visa, your qualification must be one of the secure English language tests accepted by UK Border Agency:


Visa requirements and proof of English language level

It is a visa requirement to provide information on your level of English based on an internationally recognised and secure English language test. All test reports must be no more than 2 years old. A list of these can be found on the UK Border Agency website. If you have never taken one of these tests before, you can get an initial idea of your level by using the Common European Framework self-assessment grid which gives you a level for each skill (e.g. listening B1/writing B2 etc.) However, please note that this is not a secure English language test and it is not sufficient evidence of your level of English for visa requirements.

For further information about English language, please see School of Modern Languages and Cultures: English for Academic Study.
