You will also learn how Welsh literature and the Welsh language have adapted and responded to the challenges of the modern world. The School of Welsh at Bangor has responded energetically to this demand for graduates who have competence in Welsh 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.

Studying history will also help you develop practical skills valued by employers, such as the ability to collect and analyse data and to construct a clear argument.

You will gain both sound historical knowledge and a range of transferable analytical and presentational skills. With these you will be able to tackle a variety of career options centring on administration and public leadership, for example, in personnel departments in the private sector, the civil service andlocal government as well as in a range of directly transferable vocations.
