Course Description

The course aims to provide students with the opportunity to develop their own research and presentation skills and their oral eloquence and persuasiveness in the Gaelic language, as well as broaden their awareness of the spectrum of topics available for study in Gaelic as an academic discipline. The course will also develop transferable skills which will be equally useful for the workplace (whether in a Gaelic-speaking environment or not) and for further training or postgraduate research. During the course of seminars, students will be expected to present a substantial paper on material that they have researched themselves and then organise and deal with the subsequent discussion of the topic. The seminar series is expected to relate to the other Level 4 courses in Gaelic Studies and to be relevant to students' development in Level 4 language courses.
