Diverse staff interests and courses allow study across a wide range of themes, periods and geographical areas as single or joint honours degrees.

Edinburgh has one of the largest groups of historians at any University in Britain and Ireland and offers an extremely wide choice of courses covering a range of themes, period and geographical areas.  A rich mix of different approaches to the study of History is represented among our staff, and their research interests cover a broad chronological sweep from the early medieval period to contemporary history.
