Course summary

Scottish Studies at Aberdeen is a wide, thorough and fascinating exploration of the languages and rich literary heritage of Scotland, taking advantage of our strength in teaching and world-leading research in English, Gaelic, Celtic and History. We set Scottish culture in its historical context and you gain the skills that employers seek. The linguistic and cultural history of Scotland is complex. A nation created from diverse elements – Celtic, Germanic and Norse – Scotland has always been multicultural and even today has three main literary languages: Gaelic, Scots and English.You will study widely from Gaelic Renaissance poetry to Scottish crime fiction and Scottish Gothic to Scotland in the modern world. You will be inspired by researchers who are international leaders in their fields and you will enjoy close links with two major research institutes with Scottish culture at their core. The analytical, oral and written skills you develop during your studies are highly sought after by prospective employers and your degree will bring opportunities across a range of careers – particularly if you are fluent in Scottish Gaelic. Broadcasting, journalism, teaching and librarianship are all options open to Scottish Studies graduates.Aberdeen is the ideal location to study Scotland’s diverse heritage, with a vibrant cultural identity which celebrates the traditional while embracing the modern. You will thrive in our friendly and vibrant international community, on our beautiful medieval campus with great facilities for learning, sports and leisure and many opportunities to develop extra skills and interests and to broaden your horizons through study abroad.
