Aims

The taught Masters programme in Celtic Studies at the University of Glasgow is an interdisciplinary programme focussing on the Medieval Celtic languages, literature and history, taught and run by participating scholars from Celtic and Gaelic, Archaeology and History. Glasgow’s wealth of expertise offers students a chance to branch out into many different specialist studies, as well as gaining a good grounding in one or more of the medieval Celtic languages.

Its flexible structure of core courses combined with specialist work allows it to be suitable both for those who already have an undergraduate degree in Celtic Studies or a similar subject, and for those who come to the degree with little exposure to Celtic Studies but having previous university experience of another related subject such as history, literature, or archaeology.

While the programme is intended to provide an excellent base for those who wish to proceed to further research in the form of a PhD, it is also open to those who wish to study the subject for a year for its own sake, or who wish to ‘bolt on’ knowledge of Celtic Studies to their other learning, skills and expertise. It can be taken over one year, or part-time over two years.
