* You can tailor the core teaching and specialist study pathways to your own undergraduate experience. This means the programme is suitable whether you have a Celtic Studies degree or you come from a related subject such as history, literature, or archaeology.
* You will enjoy ready access to The Baillie Collection, our prized collection of printed medieval and modern sources in Scottish and Irish history. The collection also offers printed state papers, Historical Manuscript Commission publications and a select collection of modern monographs.
* This programme will provide you with a highly stimulating environment, learning from internationally-renowned scholars.
* You will enjoy easy access to our research archive, the MacLean Room, which houses our range of books, periodicals and other printed material relating to Celtic and Gaelic.
* In the most recent independent review of research quality (RAE 2008), Celtic Studies at Glasgow was rated top in Scotland.

Programme overview * MLitt: 12 months full-time; 24 months part-time

You will take two core courses, choose two optional courses and study a Celtic Language. You will also produce a dissertation on a specialist topic agreed with your supervisor.

Core courses

* Approaching the past: critical evaluations of sources and methods in Celtic and Scottish Medieval Studies
* Themes and debates in Celtic studies.

Plus introductory courses in one of the medieval Celtic languages. If appropriate, you may do advanced study in one of these languages. You may, if appropriate, take a course in Scottish Gaelic instead.

* Introduction to Early Gaelic (Old and Middle Irish)
* Introduction to Middle Welsh.

Optional courses from a wide range of specialist courses including

* Medieval Irish and Welsh literature
* Christianity in early medieval Scotland
* Pictish monuments and culture
* Legal traditions of medieval Ireland and Wales
* Arthur in medieval Welsh literature
* Kingship in early medieval Ireland and Scotland.

You may alternatively, with the approval of the programme organiser, take a taught course from a related Masters programme or take another language course.

Normally the optional courses consist of either small group or one-to-one tutorial work on particular research topics with specialists in that field.
