University of Edinburgh
Sociology examines how individual choices are affected by wider social forces and how they can be understood by placing them in their social context. You will study the relationship between individuals and groups, issues of belonging and identity, the social causes of cooperation and conflict, and the way societies and social institutions are formed and change over time. By taking part in Edinburgh’s digital summer school, you will be joining one of the UK’s top 5 and Europe’s top 10 universities for Sociology (QS 2020). Throughout the summer school, you will explore the sociological understanding of important issues through a mixture of interactive online classes, independent study, and group project work led by our fantastic team of academic staff and students. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
History enables us to understand how the world has become what it is today, and to analyse events and issues from the past to help us navigate the future. Edinburgh has one of the largest and most diverse History departments in the UK, covering every period of history from the early Middle Ages to the present day, and all major geographical regions of the world. Throughout the digital summer school, you will experience a wide variety of topics and time-periods through interactive online classes, independent work, and engaging group projects. You will work with our fantastic team of academic staff and current students to deepen your understanding of time periods that you may be familiar with and to explore completely new areas of history. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
