Cardiff University

Music/Welsh

By combining Welsh and Music, you will gain a wealth of transferable skills and knowledge, opening the doors to a variety of career paths. You may find a joint honours degree both stimulating and rewarding as you observe similarities and differences between the two subjects. Often there are complementary issues and perspectives that link the subjects, be they critical analysis, historical context or recent research. The Welsh course is relevant to contemporary Wales and delivered by a school noted for its research quality and impact. The course aims to produce graduates with a thorough academic and practical understanding of the Welsh language, its literature and culture, a high level of skill in written and spoken Welsh and well-developed employability and creative skills relevant to modern Wales. Undergraduate courses in the School of Music are flexible and challenging, allowing you to specialise and develop your own interests while building a thorough grounding in music aesthetics, analysis, composition, ethnomusicology, music history and performance. The location of the school greatly adds to its appeal for music enthusiasts, as Cardiff is a great location for the study of music in the UK: the city has a professional opera company, Welsh National Opera, and a professional symphony orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The School of Music enjoys a fruitful relationship with both organisations that allows, for instance, students to attend dress rehearsals and buy cut-price tickets for concerts.
