Cardiff University

Welsh

The BA in Welsh 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. It is a three-year course with two routes, one for students who have studied Welsh as a first language, and one for students who have studied Welsh as a second language. In the first year these cohorts are taught separately for most of the time. The students of the two routes come together for most modules in year two, and in the final year, everyone is taught together. The course offers a range of core and optional modules to give you a grounding in Welsh language and literature as well as the opportunity to specialise in areas of personal or vocational interest. Another key aim is to enable you to find inspiration and fulfilment in the study of the Welsh language and its culture. In contemporary Wales, with the growth of the Welsh Government and the introduction of the Welsh Language Act, the ability to work professionally through the medium of Welsh could be attractive to employers. Studying at Cardiff is an opportunity to benefit from socially-relevant research which is contributing to the development of Welsh in the 21st century.
