Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Studies and Philosophy adds to your exploration of the lives and legacy of the Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian peoples with an examination of life's ‘big questions’ – how we apply reasoning and argument to questions of fundamental importance to us humans past and present. The intellectual skills you will develop and their transferability will make you a very attractive graduate with very wide career options, including in business.
Aberdeen has been a centre for Celtic studies for more than a century and is now a leading research centre in all aspects of the northern polar regions including its peoples and their societies. You will study languages, literature, culture and history, inspired by leading specialists in the history and literature of Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia in the middle ages, in medieval Celtic and Scandinavian literature and the cultural history of Ireland and Anglo-Saxon England.
What makes Philosophy at Aberdeen especially attractive is the breadth of courses, the user-friendly materials you will use and the experts who will teach you. In your first year alone you will study topics such as How Should One Live? Controversial Questions, and Experience, Knowledge and Reality.
The knowledge and skills you will develop in critical thinking, analysis and research from this subject combination will make you very attractive to employers across a range of sectors from arts, history and heritage to industry and the public sector, with particular application in media, advertising and marketing, information and communication technology, publishing, language teaching and health-related professions such as speech and language therapy.
