The History and Games Lab strives both to embed gaming into the courses that we offer at the School of History, Classics and Archaeology, and to study how games represent historical themes. See the image on this page for an example of how gaming has been incorporated in one of our current undergraduate courses.

At postgraduate level, we offer a pathway entitled Historical Games Studies within Historical Methodology, which is one of the core course of our MSc in History.

We also have a forthcoming postgraduate course on historical games design that will be taught in collaboration with the Edinburgh Futures Institute.

We will discuss how we use games in teaching in our blog.
