We are a team of enthusiastic and ambitious researchers who have enjoyed considerable success at the last two Research Assessment Exercises (RAE). We scored 5 in RAE 2001 and comparably in the most recent RAE 2008. Our results make us one of the strongest History departments in Scotland.
The excellence of our research has also been demonstrated in other ways in recent years, including our winning of various prizes and awards and an excellent record of securing research funding.
Our research covers a range of areas, with particular strengths in Scottish, British, Irish, American, European and Global History.
History at Dundee is based within the School of Humanities, which includes colleagues from the disciplines of English, Philosophy, Politics and Languages. Interdisciplinary research is promoted and encouraged within the University of Dundee.
We offer taught and research-based postgraduate degrees in British, European and American history from the early modern period to the present which attract full-time and part-time postgraduate students from the UK and overseas.
We have a range of active projects reflecting the wide range and interdisciplinarity of our research interests.
We run a programme of Research Seminars during the year - open to everyone.
