Course summary

Welsh: During this course you will be able to study aspects of Wales’s great medieval literature under expert supervision. 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. You will also follow practical language modules which will greatly enhance your career prospects.

Music: Studying, creating and performing music of all eras in a lively atmosphere of creative activity and scholarly endeavour. We offer the opportinity to study a variety of music styles from different perspectives. You will have around 12 hours of lectures, seminars and tutorials each week. Solo Performance is taught through an innovative combination of individual tuition, workshops and masterclasses. In addition, you will spend time on background reading, listening to music, completing essays and coursework and preparing for seminars as well as rehearsing and performing in ensembles, choirs and orchestras.

While many graduates pursue careers in the area of music, these degrees are also good preparation for a wide range of employment in administration, commerce, management, and other professions. Our graduates have become professional performers, composers, university lecturers, researchers, teachers, arts administrators, music therapists, music publishers, librarians, concert managers, community arts officers, stage managers, recording and broadcasting producers, and sound engineers. Many former students have followed these degrees with further musical training, as performers, scholars or composers, and there are opportunities for all these at Bangor.
