Course summary

By combining Welsh and Religious Studies, you will gain a wealth of transferable knowledge and skills, opening doors to a variety of career paths. Studying a joint honors degree can be stimulating and rewarding, as you notice similarities and differences between the two subjects. There are often issues and perspectives that link the fields of study, be they critical analysis, historical context, or recent research.

The Welsh course is relevant to contemporary Wales and is taught by a School that is recognized for the quality and impact of its research. The course aims to produce graduates with a thorough understanding (both academic and practical) of the Welsh language, its literature and culture, a high level of oral and written language skills, and well-developed employability and creative skills. relevant to modern Wales.

Religion is part of the human experience from its beginnings to the present day. It is through religion that most cultures have sought to express their understanding of the purpose of life, and religion is the foundation of people's personal and social behavior. As a Religious Studies student, you will have the opportunity to research your own religious history and culture and other peoples, along with some of the fundamental questions of existence.
