What is history?

History is the study of the past, including the people, societies, events and problems that we strive to understand.

Why should you study history?

If we develop knowledge of the past it gives us a better understanding of the present - and how it links with the future. Studying history lets us look at the events, ideas and people that created our world today.

My experience with the history department at Strathclyde has been an extremely positive one. The staff that I have came across during my time here but especially during MSc studies could not be more friendly or approachable. They are always willing chat about class material, assignments and help whenever they can.´╗┐
