Immerse yourself in the bustling Welsh capital and all it has to offer.
By combining Welsh and English Language, 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.
The English course begins with a rigorous grounding in the analysis of the language. You will be provided with traditional tools such as phonetics and grammar but you will also learn how to analyse language in the contemporary media. While arming you with the technical skills, we then expect you to grapple with exciting theories to interpret communication in a meaningful way.
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. You will be able to discover and explore the parallels between Welsh and English Language and gain a unique perspective of these two areas of study.
