Course summary

This programme offers you the opportunity to study the languages, literatures and cultures of the Celtic worlds and of French-speaking countries around the globe. **Celtic** In Celtic, we work with the medieval literary tradition in Early Irish and Medieval Welsh (the most extensive in the whole of Europe), as well as Scottish Gaelic and Irish from the late Middle Ages to the present. We also explore the rich oral tradition recorded from the 18th century to the present day, and with poetry from the 18th century golden age of Gaelic literature. You will study 19th and 20th century responses to the rapid social, cultural, and linguistic changes in countries where the Celtic languages are spoken. You will also study the writing, song, and media production emerging from the lively and varied contemporary cultural scene in Gaelic Scotland, Ireland, and Wales.Our expertise spans theoretical and practical issues of current sociolinguistics, language policy and language revitalisation. **Scottish Gaelic** Scottish Gaelic is at the heart of our Celtic programme and, at honours level, it is also possible to study the medieval Celtic languages. At all levels, we offer courses in language, literature, history, and culture, enabling you to build your programme by developing your own interests in particular areas, periods, and disciplines of Celtic studies. **French** Studying French on this programme will lead you to near-native fluency in the language, thanks to our four years of intensive training. At the same time, you will explore French culture including its literature and cinema, but also its political history and philosophical ideas. French is a major world language, in Africa as well as in Europe and Canada, and its art and thought have played a central part in creating our modern civilisation. As a large subject area, French and Francophone Studies at the University of Edinburgh can offer you a wide range of courses spanning the Middle Ages to the 21st century, including specialist options in literature, film and politics taught by leading experts in their fields.
