Scottish History by Distance Learning
We offer two Open University 3rd level modules, which can count towards an OU degree. You do not have to be resident in Scotland to complete these modules. Students receive five course books, which include essays and readings. All students are assigned to a tutor to support their studies and mark their assignments. There are no tutorials, but there are two optional day schools, which are held in Dundee (provisional, subject to numbers). You can find out more by following these links

This course builds upon the expertise of History staff at Dundee to provide an integrated programme of study including research skills, a critical understanding of the principal theories and concepts of Scottish History and historiography, and the chance through independent research to make a contribution to the development of Scottish history.
The central aim of this course is to examine the many different interpretations of Scottish history and you will be encouraged to think critically about the various ways in which historians have viewed the development of Scotland over the past five centuries and to consider some of the ways in which Scottish history has been portrayed in a popular context.
