Celtic Studies offers a wide choice of topics for research, ranging from the early history of the Celts in Europe to the present situation of the Celtic languages in the British Isles, Brittany and beyond. The research can focus on a number of disciplinary aspects, including language and linguistics, archaeology, history, literature and folklore as well as music. With the exception of elective Old Irish and Middle Welsh language courses (CLST6007 and CLST6012) offered to postgraduate students, all work towards master’s degrees and doctorates in Celtic Studies is assessed by thesis only.
