MSc/PgDip Ancestral Studies The first of its kind in the world, Ancestral Studies is an innovative new interdisciplinary programme. Uniting teaching across humanities and sciences, Ancestral Studies explores the social and biological contours of identity, allowing you to study across multiple disciplines, create your own curriculum and pursue self-directed unique research. Why this programme A truly interdisciplinary degree programme taught collaboratively by world leading academic departments An emphasis on building practical skills through professional masterclasses and skills workshops An immersive learning experience drawing upon the unique Scottish landscape and its rich history   The opportunity to contribute to, and shape, a new academic field of research Programme structure This course can be taken full or part time (at the convener’s discretion).  It is comprised of two core modules and several optional taught modules.  This structure allows you to shape your own curriculum and tailor it to your interests (insofar as staffing and course availability allows).  You will work closely with the convener to shape a meaningful and intellectually cogent programme of study.  Over the summer you will complete a dissertation or professional report dependent upon your interests. Core and Optional Courses Core Courses Research Methods for Ancestral Studies introduces you to key research methodologies and practices drawn from a range of disciplines. You will receive an introduction to specialist and transferable skills such as working with archives and online genealogical resources, visual culture, heritage landscapes, museums and material culture.  Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of primary sources.  Approaches to Ancestral Studies provides a conceptual framework for exploring core themes of the discipline through weekly topics drawn from multiple disciplines.  You will consider questions of identity (genetic and social), examine current trends in family history and heritage research and address questions of past generations and their experiences of place, language and material culture.  You will be exposed to theoretical, critical and practical insights from across the arts, humanities and sciences to explore ancestry, relational identity, intellectual inheritance and memory works. Optional courses Optional courses will be drawn from a range of disciplines and will therefore change on a yearly basis.  You will work with the programme convener to choose a complement of optional courses that will align with your interests.  These courses may be taken from History, Archaeology, Celtic and Gaelic, and more (depending on course offerings in any particular year). Dissertation MSc students will complete a dissertation.  Innovative, cross-disciplinary dissertations are encouraged and will be supervised/co-supervised within the appropriate School/s.   Background and aims Ancestral Studies is a new and emergent area of interdisciplinary research and practice. Concerned with the social, cultural and biological contours of identity, it explores how our ideas of who we are may be influenced by perceived relationships with our ancestors.  Ancestral Studies asks questions of how past generations have engaged with place, landscape, language, text, visual and material culture in order to create a sense of being and belonging.  This unique and ground-breaking programme brings together arts and humanities disciplines with the social and physical sciences.  It aims to generate exciting cutting edge scholarship to examine people’s relationships with their own and others ancestors and the complex contemporary and trans-temporal relevance of these connections in wider socio-political and public contexts throughout the world. Drawing on the outstanding backdrop of Scotland’s ancestral resources, including those of the global Scottish diaspora, the MSc in Ancestral Studies builds on established research strengths and expertise within the University and our partner organisations. This includes nationally significant collections housed in The Hunterian Museum, University Special collections and Archives, as well as the holdings of Glasgow Life and the Scottish Screen Archive. Ancestral Studies balances this local Scottish and UK focus with wider European and global perspectives making it highly relevant to both home and international applicants looking for innovative teaching and learning provision in an exciting and ever-expanding field. Dissertation You will have the option of completing a dissertation or professional report. Innovative, cross-disciplinary dissertations are encouraged and will be supervised/co-supervised within the appropriate School/s.  This will provide good grounding should you choose to pursue further study. Industry links and employability Due to its interdisciplinary nature, Ancestral Studies enjoys links with a range of departments across the University of Glasgow and beyond.  Our Professional Masterclasses and Skills Workshops bring in world leading academics in their fields and external experts.  You will be able to build a wide network of contacts through these connections.
