The British Studies program from The University of the Highlands and Islands allows students to develop their interest in any aspect of British identities, across disciplines and centuries, and offers an excellent foundation for independent research.
You will explore the shifting meanings of Britishness, from the Roman era to the present day, with experts who are highly research active. You will examine a variety of representations and articulations of Britishness, exploring how British mentalities and identities have been experienced by people from all backgrounds - both in the UK and abroad - and questioning the idea of Britishness.
