Changes at Strathclyde University's genealogy courses

The University of Strathclyde's postgraduate and masters programmes in genealogy courses are being renamed from their previous discipline title of Genealogical Studies to the new title of Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies.

Bruce Durie, who first set up the course in 2006, is leaving the university at the end of August, with Graham Holton taking over as the course head from that point. Graham has been part of the tutorial team since the course started, and is author (with Jack Winch) of Discover Your Scottish Ancestry (2009, Edinburgh University Press, 2nd ed).

The courses handbook for 2011-12 is available online at

Was there a press release about this Chris? Wonder where he is off too?

It was announced on a former Strathclyde genealogy students forum, of which I'm a member.
