Welsh: As Wales develops as a vibrant bilingual country, there has never been a more exciting time to study Welsh at university level. In fields as varied as education, media and journalism, the civil service, the heritage industry, public relations and marketing there is a great demand for graduates who have competence in Welsh and the ability to work in a bilingual environment. The School of Welsh and Celtic Studies at Bangor has responded energetically to this demand by designing courses which are both academically rigorous and relevant to the needs of modern Wales. At Bangor you will have the opportunity to study rich and diverse literary texts extending from the tales of the Mabinogion to the dynamic literature, theatre and film of contemporary Wales. You will also follow practical language modules which will greatly enhance your career prospects.
German: This course will equip you with advanced skills in the German language, as well as offering a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history of the German-speaking lands. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. This single honours course will furnish you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and culture of modern Germany and Austria. You will also have the added bonus of studying Dutch in your second year which opens up further horizons within Europe.
