Course Summary

Irish and Celtic Studies is part of the Modern Languages research cluster, which provides a vibrant environment for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship. Recognised as a centre of excellence for research into the languages, literatures, histories, linguistics, visual cultures, and cultural identities of Europe and beyond, the cluster is founded on a dynamic and forward-looking research ethos. Within this cluster, Irish and Celtic Studies aims to promote and disseminate cutting-edge research across all periods of the Irish language and also focuses on aspects of language and literature in Scotland. Research in the unit is conducted on both an individual and collaborative basis. Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally. Our postgraduates not only go on to work in academia but find employment in the media and heritage industries, and in various arms of the civil service.
