Applications are now being taken for prospective students on a taught postgraduate degree in Scottish Folklore at the University of Glasgow’s campus in Dumfries (southwest Scotland). The MLitt Scottish Folklore focuses on the folklore and ethnology of lowland and highland, urban and rural, historical past and present day Scotland at both a local and international level. As well as writing a dissertation, students complete a survey course on folklore genres and a practice-based class on fieldwork and research methodologies, and choose a further two courses on such topics as Scottish witch beliefs, folklore of animals, ballads and storytelling. If you would like to study such topics as folktales, legends and supernatural beliefs, in the beautiful south-west region of Scotland, applications for full and part time study are currently being accepted from eligible students for Sept 2010 entry.
