Economics and Gaelic at Aberdeen adds to your thorough grounding in the global economy and how it works with an in-depth study of Gaelic, Scotland’s oldest living language and its origins and culture. The language, intellectual skills and Scottish perspective you will develop – combined with your strong business and economic skills – will give you an extra advantage for your career in business or another sector, especially with a Scottish or international dimension.
In Economics, you will explore the microeconomics of business and society, macroeconomics of the world economy and economic problems in political, social and historical contexts, with a strong emphasis on applied learning. You will thrive in the dynamic, international environment of our Business School of 45 nationalities and be taught by experts including leading petroleum economist and government adviser Professor Alex Kemp and our health economists whose work influences Scottish and UK policy decisions on public health.
Gaelic is an area of particular strength at Aberdeen. We have been teaching Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig) and culture for one hundred years, led by teachers and researchers passionate about Gaelic and whose work directly influences Scottish policy on keeping Gaelic alive, healthy and important in Scotland today. Our students and staff play an important role in the Gaelic-speaking community in the north of Scotland through clubs, activities, networks and organisations. The skills you will gain through this combination will add to your strong appeal to business employers with additional career options for graduates fluent in Scottish Gaelic including teaching, Gaelic development, teaching, arts management and media.
