The University of Aberdeen has been offering English degrees since 1894, and is a leading centre for the study of literature, language and creative writing. With a beautiful medieval campus, and exceptional library resources spanning the past five hundred years, Aberdeen is an excellent place to study English at undergraduate or postgraduate level. Every period of literature is taught, from medieval to contemporary, and our staff include specialists in English, Scottish, Irish and American literature.
English at Aberdeen has an international research profile, and is associated with major scholarly projects such as the Edinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels of Walter Scott. Research centres include the Centre for the Novel, the interdisciplinary Sir Herbert Grierson Centre and the Research Institute of Irish and Scottish Studies. We are also home to the WORD Centre for Creative Writing, and we run the annual WayWORD Festival exploring unconventional forms of expression.
