The aim of the programme is to promote and facilitate advanced interdisciplinary study of the Gaidhealtachd past and present, its literature, its language and its culture, through providing a grounding in essential research skills and linguistic training.

A secondary but very important aim is to cultivate a culture of collaborative teaching and research between academic and research staff (and postgraduates) across Schools.

Learning Outcomes

Graduates will have developed:

* an understanding of Scottish Gaelic (or an appropriate alternative language) at an elementary, intermediate or advanced level (depending on prior exposure);
* an understanding of current directions within Gaidhealtachd studies;
* research skills essential to their particular field of interest within Gaidhealtachd studies;
* the beginnings of specialist expertise in at least one field of study.

Languages are taught in manageable mixed classes of undergraduates and postgraduates of broadly similar linguistic competence (eg elementary Gaelic), including spoken, written and conversational elements. Skills and specialisms are taught in small seminars. Some courses are taught by a team of experts; others are taught by a single expert.

Good honours degree in an appropriate subject (cultural anthropology/ethnology, history, linguistics, literary studies, sociology) preferably with a Scottish dimension.English Language Requirements * IELTS 7.0 (with at least 6.0 in each section) * TOEFL 600 (with 55 in each section plus 4.0 in TWE) * TOEFL 250 in CBT (with 21 in each section) * TOEFL-iBT 100 (with at least 20 in each section) * CPE Grade A English Language Requirements CAE score: (read more) Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0).
