Cardiff University

Philosophy/Welsh

By combining Welsh and Philosophy, you will gain a wealth of transferable skills and knowledge, opening the doors to a variety of career paths. The Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to specialise in two subjects and you will find they often share issues and perspectives. 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. There are two related aspects of the philosophy course at Cardiff that mark it out among Russell Group universities. One is that there is a strong emphasis on ethics, politics, and aesthetics among the modules on offer. The other is that our research and teaching is spread equally across both the ‘analytic’ and ‘Continental’ styles of Western philosophy. As a joint honours student, you will find that often there are complementary issues and perspectives that link subjects, be they critical analysis, historical contexts or recent research. NOTE: This joint degree programme is usually available only to those who have studied Welsh as a first language at A-level. If you have not done this but feel your Welsh is of an equivalent standard, email cymraeg@cardiff.ac.uk.
