Course content

The interdisciplinary M.Litt in Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Studies programme appeals to students interested in comparative study of the Celtic-speaking and Germanic peoples. It offers you training in mediaeval and modern languages, thematic literature/history courses which enable you to pursue individual topics in depth, and specialist supervision for a 15,000-word dissertation on a topic of your own choice.

The programme, which is unique in Scotland, is a one-year taught course, or two years part-time. It is suited for students seeking to continue with postgraduate study as well as those simply interested to learn more. It encourages students to think across traditional scholarly boundaries by exploring the interactions between Celtic and Anglo-Saxon cultures, and between the Insular world and Scandinavia.
