Course summary

By combining Welsh and Philosophy, you will gain a wealth of transferable knowledge and skills, opening doors to a variety of career paths. The joint honors degree gives you the opportunity to specialize in two subjects and you will find that they often share issues and perspectives.

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.

There are two interrelated aspects of the philosophy course at Cardiff that make it notable among Russell Group universities. One is that there is a strong emphasis on ethics, politics and aesthetics among the modules offered. The other is that our research and teaching is spread evenly across the 'analytical' and 'Continental' styles of Western Philosophy.

As a joint honors student, you will find that there are often areas and perspectives that link topics, be it critical analysis, historical contexts or recent research.
