What will I learn?

You will study two areas which have defined our notions of Wales and Welshness over the past hundred years. In Welsh, you will study literature and language which extends from the early northern-British poetry of Aneirin to the authors of post-industrial Wales. Welsh History will look at the evolution of Wales, its politics, society, industry and religion through the centuries and its relationship with broader historical forces. Graduates of Welsh and Welsh History are employed in the civil service, local government, broadcasting, publishing, teaching, arts and heritage sectors.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Welsh for Beginners Q565 or History (with Foundation Year) V10F .
