Program Overview

Program Description:

Scotland's past comes to life!

From clans and clashes to the Vikings and the Romans, from monasticism to the Stuart monarchy, this is a hands-on exploration of Scottish history where Scotland itself is the classroom over four summer weeks. While your studies will be based in Edinburgh, the past of Scotland will come to life as you live and breathe Scottish history through field excursions and site visits throughout the country. Various lenses, from archaeological to geological to historical to cultural, will be utilized to gain new insight and understanding from this fascinating land.

You will enroll in the Scottish History course with the option to add Curating, Interpretation and Heritage: A Scottish Perspective if interested.
