Course summary

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.

English Literature: This course offers you the opportunity to study a broad range of English Literature in small groups, led by the research experts in the field, in an atmosphere of creative, scholarly enterprise in order to develop skills of critical analysis that are highly valued by employers. Assessment is increasingly by coursework. A degree from the School of English Literature provides our students with excellent transferrable skills valued by employers in a range of sectors. Our graduates have gone on to work in: teaching, publishing, advertising, journalism and the media, the law, social work, business, politics, accountancy, the performing arts, civil service, the police, human resources, and academia.
