University of Aberdeen
Irish and Scottish Literature
Students are required to have a good 2.1 degree or above, or equivalent, in an appropriate discipline. Applicants who have been educated in the medium of English are still required to meet the English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that applicants meet the 'postgraduate standard' level of English proficiency. Applicants who are in doubt about their proficiency in English should contact the British Council office or its equivalent in their country. For applicants whose 1st language is not English, it is important that their proficiency in English is good in order for them to study successfully at the University.
In semester 1, students will complete the taught core course, 'crosscurrents in Scottish and Irish literature', introducing the historical range of Scottish and Irish literary tradition, and offering an overview of key critical questions and approaches as a basis for future research. Supplementary courses can be selected from a wide variety of specialist options on offer. They include training in theory and methods of research, plus a large variety of options covering both different periods and genres. Each candidate's curriculum is personalised, so that the courses undertaken provide everyone with a programme that fits their interests and their needs. Please note, however, that not all courses are available every year.
Assessment methods vary by individual course, and include essays, reports, presentations, written exercises and written and oral examinations. The Master's also requires a 15,000-word dissertation.
