Course summary

Course overview

By combining Welsh and English Language, you will gain a wealth of transferable skills and knowledge, opening the doors to a variety of career paths. The Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to specialise in two subjects and you will find they often share issues and perspectives.

The Welsh course is relevant to contemporary Wales and delivered by a school noted for its research quality and impact. The course aims to produce graduates with a thorough academic and practical understanding of the Welsh language, its literature and culture, a high level of skill in written and spoken Welsh and well-developed employability and creative skills relevant to modern Wales.

The English course begins with a rigorous grounding in the analysis of the language. You will be provided with traditional tools such as phonetics and grammar but you will also learn how to analyse language in the contemporary media. While arming you with the technical skills, we then expect you to grapple with exciting theories to interpret communication in a meaningful way.

As a joint honours student, you will find that often there are complementary issues and perspectives that link subjects, be they critical analysis, historical contexts or recent research. You will be able to discover and explore the parallels between Welsh and English Language and gain a unique perspective of these two areas of study.

Career prospects

We provide our students with a highly satisfying academic experience that assists their development as critically-minded, culturally-aware citizens whose high analytic skills, powers of expression and progressive self-reliance make them extremely attractive to employers.

The demand for Welsh speakers means that a degree in Welsh can be highly valuable for jobs and roles that require bilingual speakers. Many of our graduates are now following careers in areas such as law, politics, media, performing arts, administration and education, or engaged in postgraduate study.

Degrees in English Language combine the best of humanities skills (flexibility, communication, critique) and social science skills (technical analysis and systematic method). Common destinations include primary and secondary school teaching, teaching English as a foreign language, (digital) journalism, marketing and public relations, sales and advertising, the civil service and public administration.
