GAELIC: - Explore Scottish Gaelic language and culture through the centuries to the present-day, and develop your Gaelic language skills for the contemporary job market. You can study Gaelic folklore, song, modern poetry, autobiography and contemporary fiction all through Gaelic, while the University’s Gaelic initiative and the city’s vibrant Gaelic community also provide opportunities to use Gaelic outside the classroom. SOCIAL & PUBLIC POLICY: - Social & Public Policy focuses on social problems such as poverty, homelessness and ill-health. The programme applies ideas from political science, sociology and economics to explore how governments shape their responses, and to understand the impacts of public policy on society. You’ll have the valuable opportunity of a work placement with a voluntary or public sector organisation.
