Course summary

Whether you are interested in literature, language, history or culture, we provide a supportive environment for postgraduate research.

Overview

We offer courses and supervision in a range of subject areas related to the research activities and interests of academic staff.

We were rated in the top 10 result for Celtic & Gaelic (overall and for outputs) in the recent research assessment exercise (REF 2014)

Topics in which we would welcome postgraduate research include:

  • modern and medieval Celtic languages
  • literature and cultures, especially modern Scottish Gaelic and Irish language and linguistics
  • modern Scottish Gaelic literature, 18th–21st centuries
  • Gaelic linguistics
  • medieval Celtic literatures, early Gaelic / early Irish, Middle Welsh
  • textual cultures of the medieval Celtic-speaking areas
  • medieval Celtic art
  • Celtic place names of Scotland.

Interdisciplinary context

We are well placed to provide an appropriate environment for cross- and interdisciplinary research. Staff and students benefit from collaboration and interaction in research and teaching with members of other subject areas such as Archaeology, Scottish History and English Language. We are committed to creating and sustaining an open and involved research environment, and are one of the core subject areas of the Centre for Scottish and Celtic Studies. We also participate in the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

Thesis length: 70,000-100,000 words, including references, bibliography and appendices (other than documentary appendices).

A Doctor of Philosophy may be awarded to a student whose thesis is an original work making a significant contribution to knowledge in, or understanding of, a field of study and normally containing material worthy of publication.
