Course Summary:
This programme offers you the opportunity to study the languages, literatures and cultures of the Celtic worlds side-by-side with the history of Scotland. In Celtic, we work with the medieval literary tradition in Gaelic and Welsh, the most extensive in the whole of Europe, with the rich oral tradition recorded from the eighteenth century to the present day, and with poetry from the eighteenth-century golden age of Gaelic literature. We explore nineteenth- and twentieth-century responses to the rapid social, cultural, and linguistic changes in countries where the Celtic languages are spoken, and work with the writing, song, and media production emerging from the lively and varied contemporary cultural scene in Gaelic Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Scottish Gaelic is at the heart of the study of Celtic at the University of Edinburgh, and at honours level, it is also possible to study modern Irish and 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. We offer an unrivalled concentration of expertise in Scottish history, with courses covering the political, intellectual, economic, social and cultural history of Scotland from the medieval period to the recent past. These courses deal with the great events, movements and ideas that have defined the Scottish past, and with the individuals, communities and institutions that have shaped Scottish life. Particular emphasis is given to the history of Edinburgh, to Scotland's evolving relationship with the other parts of the British Isles, and with the significant influence of Scots across the wider world. In studying for this programme you will benefit from the rich archival resources available not only within the University but also in the great collections based in the city, including the National Library, National Records, National Galleries and National Museums of Scotland.
