Stevenson Welcomes Launch of Doric Course

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed news Doric will now be taught at university for the first time.

In a motion to the Scottish Parliament, Mr Stevenson celebrated the move by the University of Aberdeen.

Doric is a form of North East Scots which is spoken by 49% of people in Aberdeenshire.

It will now be taught to undergraduates at Aberdeen University with the course counting towards a student’s degree.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“I am delighted Doric will be taught to undergraduates at the University of Aberdeen.

“It has a long history and there are many words and phrases linking Doric with Scandinavian languages too.

“This language is a critical part of north-east culture and I wish the University all the best in delivering this course which I hope will bring more interest and many new speakers.”
