Course summary

HISTORY: - The study of history is the study of change and continuity in human society through time. In this wide-ranging programme you will learn different approaches to studying the past as a way of understanding the present in its political, economic, ideological, social and cultural sense. History hosts the Centre for Gender History which works closely with external organisations in the field of women’s and gender issues. You’ll be able to take courses offered by members of the Scottish Centre for War Studies which offers expertise in war and conflict from medieval times to the present day. HISTORY OF ART: - History of art seeks to understand how and why paintings, sculptures, buildings and works in a variety of media come to look the way they do. You will benefit from the extensive resources of the University Library and Archives, and The Hunterian, the University’s museum and art gallery, which feature the world-famous Hunter, Whistler and Mackintosh collections. You will also have access to Kelvin Hall, the University and City’s innovative collections-access centre. In your third-year vacation you will receive a grant to assist you to visit museums, galleries and buildings relevant to your chosen course options and dissertation subject.
