Course Summary

Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Studies and Gaelic Studies is an ideal subject combination to add to your study in the lives and legacy of the Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Scandinavian peoples. You will explore Gaelic from its Celtic origins to its role today as Scotland’s oldest living language. The language, historical perspective and study skills you will develop will give you a great advantage for a wide range of career options, especially with a Scottish or international dimension.Aberdeen has been a centre for Celtic studies for more than a century and is now a leading research centre in all aspects of the northern polar regions including its peoples. You will study literature, culture, history and languages, inspired by leading specialists in the history and literature of Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia in the middle ages, in medieval Celtic and Scandinavian literature and the cultural history of Ireland and Anglo-Saxon England.Gaelic is an area of particular strength at Aberdeen. We have been teaching Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig) and culture for a hundred years, led by teachers and researchers passionate about Gaelic, and whose work directly influences Scottish policy on keeping Gaelic alive, healthy and important in Scotland today. Our students and staff play an important role in today’s Gaelic-speaking community in the north of Scotland through clubs, activities, networks and organisations. Opportunities for graduates fluent in Scottish Gaelic are very good. Teaching, Gaelic development, arts management and librarianship are all career options and the commitment in Scotland to Gaelic broadcasting means increasing demand for Gaelic graduates to work in the media. You will also have transferable skills sought by employers in other sectors and business.
