Welcome to the University of St Andrews History Society!

We are the oldest and largest arts academic society within the University. Our aim is to enhance the academic and social lives of St Andrews students interested in history and encourage more interaction between students and members of the School of History Academic Staff. 

We put on a large programme of activities for our members to engage with, including international and domestic trips, weekly social events, dinners, our own Historical Journals, and academic talks.

I look forward to meeting you all over the coming year.
