Doing research on a topic related to Galician language, culture or history (cinema, theatre, literature, translation, music...) can be very good for your CV.
There are many areas of Galician language, history and culture that have not been studied in England, Wales or Scotland yet so you could become an expert on an area of your choice. You could also become a translator.
Some examples of research carried out in Galician Studies
- Dr David Garcia Vidal, PhD on the re-configuration of the Galician literary system during the 80s and 90s, with a particular focus on Galician theatre and specifically on the collection of 105 texts published by the Escola Dramática Galega between 1978 and 1994
