The Graduate School at St Leonard's College

In 2017 the University of St Andrews launched a new and exciting initiative – a Graduate School offering a range of distinctive interdisciplinary Masters degrees.

The Graduate School's interdisciplinary programmes and community will provide students with a stimulating opportunity to work across subject boundaries and expand their knowledge base. Drawing on concepts and methodologies from the humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences students will be encouraged to use ideas from different disciplines to illuminate their studies and give them new insights into contemporary debates and professional practice.
