Welsh and Journalism

By combining Welsh and Journalism, you will gain a wealth of transferable skills and knowledge, opening the doors to a variety of career paths. You may find studying a joint honours degree both stimulating and rewarding as you observe similarities and differences between the two subjects. 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. It offers core and optional modules to give you a grounding in language and literature as well as the opportunity to specialise in areas of personal or career interest. The overall aim of Journalism is to equip students to become well informed citizens in a media saturated society and begins from the assumption that to understand modern society, we need to understand the central role played by media and cultural industries. While you will be able to take some practical modules, the emphasis of the degree is academic and analytical. NOTE: This joint degree course is usually available only to those who have studied Welsh as a first language. Applicants to this degree will normally have studied some post-16 qualifications through the medium of Welsh.
