About

Whether you are interested in literature, language, history and culture, we provide a supportive environment for postgraduate research. The Celtic and Gaelic programme is offered at University of Glasgow.

Overview

University of Glasgow offer Celtic and Gaelic courses and supervision in a range of subject areas related to the research activities and interests of academic staff.

We were rated in the top 10 result for Celtic & Gaelic (overall and for outputs) in the recent research assessment exercise (REF 2014).

Interdisciplinary Context

We are well placed to provide an appropriate environment for cross- and interdisciplinary research. Staff and students benefit from collaboration and interaction in research and teaching with members of other subject areas such as Archaeology. We are committed to creating and sustaining an open and involved research environment, and are one of the core subject areas of the Centre for Scottish and Celtic Studies. We also participate in the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

A Doctor of Philosophy may be awarded to a student whose thesis is an original work making a significant contribution to knowledge in, or understanding of, a field of study and normally containing material worthy of publication.

Thesis Length:70,000-100,000 words, including references, bibliography and appendices (other than documentary appendices).

If undertaking a practice-based doctorate the thesis will consist of a shorter word length, to be negotiated with your supervisor, but not normally under 40,000 words, in addition to a substantive piece, or pieces, of practice.

Resources

Teaching and research in the Arts and Humanities is supported by the outstanding resources of our University Library with its special collections and our on-campus Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery.

Our close links and partnerships with Glasgow Life, and the city’s many museums, art galleries, performing arts and music venues, international festivals and creative industry organisations make the University of Glasgow the ideal place for postgraduate study of the arts.
