Course summary

ECONOMIC & SOCIAL HISTORY: Economic and social history is the study of the way societies change in their economic activities and social organisation. It is concerned with how people in the past lived and worked, and how this has affected the development of today’s world. It is possible to do this degree together with a language, including a year abroad. QUANTITATIVE METHODS: 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.
