Gaelic Studies and Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Studies is part of the School of Language and Literature in the College of Arts and Social Sciences. We have been providing degrees in Celtic since 1916 and, appropriately, given our location, we have always specialised in the Gaelic of Scotland. From September 2013 our current Celtic programmes will be expanded to become the MA degree in Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Studies.
We provide a friendly and vibrant learning environment for undergraduate as well as postgraduate studies. At undergraduate level, we offer students single honours degrees in Gaelic Studies (MA) and, from September 2013, in Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Studies (MA) along with a range of joint honours degrees, including our joint degree in Gaelic and Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Studies.
Our teaching is underpinned by our research activity, funded by research councils, government and charitable foundations, on topics ranging from the prose literature of the Celtic and Scandinavian Middle Ages to understanding sociolinguistic change in Gaelic-English bilingual speech communities. We publish the journal Scottish Gaelic Studies, which has been a leading publication in its field for nearly 90 years. We also co-lead the inter-university Soillse research project.
