Postgraduate taught degrees

Celtic & Gaelic at Glasgow brings together the teaching and research of the ancient, medieval and modern periods in the Celtic languages of Scottish Gaelic, Irish and Welsh.

With links to archaeology, history and modern languages and cultures, we can provide you with a unique opportunity to study a range of fascinating languages and cultures.

Gaelic has been taught at the University of Glasgow since the end of the 19th century and we are the only university to have a named Chair of Gaelic, which reflects our commitment to the language.

Postgraduate study in Celtic & Gaelic at Glasgow

Celtic & Gaelic offers Masters programmes centred around the advanced interdisciplinary study of the Celtic languages and their literature, history and culture. Celtic and Gaelic’s own postgraduate taught programme is the MSc Celtic Studies. It is usually one year full-time or two years part-time and it begins in September.

Some of our research Masters programmes, such as the MRes (Celtic) and MRes (Gaelic) also allow students to choose from a selection of taught components. The MRes courses combine these taught courses with a larger independent research component.

Masters programmes offered by other subject areas, such as the MSc Ancient Cultures offered by Classics, also allow students to take advantage of taught courses in Celtic and Gaelic.
