The Graduate School of the College of Arts offers an extremely diverse and dynamic range of postgraduate opportunities. We are researchers, policymakers, authors, linguists, archivists, curators, critics, philosophers, playwrights, theologians, historians, technicians, composers, translators, classicists, practitioners, musicians, archaeologists and art lovers.
Across every School and Subject Area our College is home to scholars conducting world-leading and agenda-setting research. According to the Research Assessment Exercise 2008, History of Art at the University is ranked top in the UK, and seven other subjects are ranked in the top ten in the UK: Cultural Policy; Celtic & Gaelic; English Language; English Literature; Scottish Literature; Digital Humanities; and Theatre, Film & Television Studies. In 2011–12 we were awarded the second-largest amount of funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council. All of our students benefit from being based in one of the most exciting cultural hubs in the UK. We have strong links with the city’s creative and cultural community, and many of our students undertake collaborative research, internships or work placements with industry professionals.
