Undergraduate Degrees in the School of History

With over fifty members of staff the School of History at St Andrews provides a very wide range of undergraduate teaching, both geographically and chronologically.

Teaching takes place in the heart of beautiful and historic St Andrews. With only 5000 undergraduate students and situated in a small seaside town dominated by the University (and golf), the University of St Andrews prides itself on its strong and cohesive academic community.

For history students, alongside lectures given by experts in their field, regular small group tutorials and seminars provide the opportunity to develop historical learning and skills in a friendly and supportive environment.

The School of History also supports a community outwith the classroom, with graduate students, seminars, visiting speakers and an active History Society.

Most of our undergraduate students will graduate with an M.A. (Hons) which is completed in four years.  The degree follows the traditional Scottish pattern – in first and second year History is studied alongside other subjects; in the final two years students take advanced and specialised History classes. It is also possible to take History modules as part of a General Degree.
