About the course

This exciting taught postgraduate literature course allows you to study the writers and literatures of the Highlands and Islands, in the communities to which they belong. Trace the footsteps of these inspirational creatives, explore the literary heritage of the area and experience, first hand, the diverse culture of the region.

You will study three main themes throughout the course, namely:

  • landscape and identity
  • the literary and linguistic legacy for the modern period
  • the place of Highlands and Islands literature in the wider context

You will benefit from lectures and seminars by local writers, and the team at the Institute for Northern Studies. Our small classes will give you a more personal study experience during this masters course in Highlands and Islands Literature.

Graham Hannaford

Apart from actual face to face contact through video-conference - yes, oral presentations are possible from 10,000 miles away - all the lecturers are really quick and helpful in answering email questions, and the resources that are available online are fascinating.” [Graham Hannaford, current taught postgraduate student, UHI Centre for History]
