About

The Celtic Studies programme at The University of Edinburgh is ideal if you have a clear idea of the independent research you wish to undertake at masters level. We are happy to discuss your topic with you. We specialise in the languages, literatures and cultures of the Celtic and Gaelic peoples, from Iron Age Europe to the present.

Overview

Programme Description

Based in Scotland’s capital and festival city, our research community is at the forefront of policy development and cultural innovation. The Celtic Studies programme at The University of Edinburgh works at the cutting edge of linguistic, cultural, literary, and sociolinguistic research in the Celtic languages, with a particular focus on Scottish Gaelic. We play a leading role in relation to language planning and maintenance, particularly for Scottish Gaelic.

Training and support

This programme includes training on research skills, methods and problems in Celtic and Scottish Studies using a combination of traditional and innovative methods. You will be encouraged and supported to make direct contact with original sources and to gain hands-on experience, whether in reading medieval manuscripts or in handling electronically-stored data.

Between the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC), the Careers Service and the Institute for Academic Development (IAD), you’ll find a further range of programmes and resources to help you develop your postgraduate skills, as well as having access to the University’s fantastic libraries, collections and worldwide strategic partnerships.
