Economic and Social History are proud to host the largest cluster of economic and social historians in Scotland. We are internationally recognised for research excellence in modern economic and social history, with exceptional strengths in business and financial history, the history of medicine, and social and gender history.

As such, it encompasses a very wide array of intellectual approaches and brings the particular rigour and demands of historical enquiry to a range of social science methodologies. Final assessment involves the submission of a thesis of between 70,000 and 100,000 words and an oral examination (viva voce). Our programmes are based on thorough training in research methods and we encourage you to take part in numerous exciting seminars, conferences and events. We offer modern library, IT services and a wide-range of support services. You will be living in one of Europe’s most exciting cities which have a vibrant cultural and social life.
