What will I learn?

This degree provides an exciting opportunity to learn about languages, culture and history in a Welsh and international context. You can combine a Modern language (Chinese, French, German, Italian or Spanish, from beginners or advanced level) with the study of Welsh. Half your taught modules in each year will be in modern languages and half will be in Welsh. In Welsh, you will learn about diverse aspects of Welsh culture from a variety of different periods, while language modules will help you to thrive in a bilingual and multilingual environment.All modern language modules include written skills (e.g. translation and essay writing) and oral skills taught by a native speaker.Optional modules available in modern languages allow you to gain insight into the cinema, literature, history, and culture of the country whose language you are studying.Within Cymraeg, you will have the opportunity to learn about aspects of Welsh culture and history that will complement what you will study in Modern Languages. This will include learning about how novels, poetry and other cultural forms have shaped the identity of Wales over a variety of different periods.There are also extra-curricular activities that will both boost your subject knowledge and allow you to get to know your fellow students. These include cultural and social events organised by student-run societies in the academic departments. In addition, Pontio – Bangor University’s Arts and Innovation Centre – means that there will be a range of cultural events taking place only a short walk away from where many of your classes will be taking place.‘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.
