Course Description

CELTIC STUDIES: - Celtic Studies provides the opportunity to choose from a range of courses on the medieval and modern Celtic languages of the British Isles (Scottish Gaelic, Irish and Welsh) and their associated cultures. You will have the opportunity to study the medieval and modern cultures of the Celtic-speaking peoples, with scholars at the cutting edge of research: and learn a Celtic language of the British Isles. CENTRAL & EAST EUROPEAN STUDIES: - The twentieth century witnessed dramatic changes in the fortunes of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. War, revolution and widespread social and economic change resulted in a tumultuous period in the history of the region. The collapse of communism and the subsequent changes brought about has ensured that many of the inherited problems continue to this day. From the Baltic to the Balkans and from Berlin to Vladivostock we chart the key issues in this crucial area. You will study the history, economics, politics and sociology of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The University is a hub for a government-funded Centre of Excellence for Russian, Central & East European Studies, which hosts cultural, social and academic events throughout the year.
