Course summary

Join us to explore Welsh literature, language and culture through an international and interdisciplinary lens.

Our MA Welsh and Celtic Studies programme allows you to investigate and explore the relationship between literature, language, culture and identity across the centuries – from medieval literature to contemporary fields such as language planning and policy.

This is an open and flexible programme, enabling you to tailor its content to your interests and matched with the wide-ranging and diverse research specialisms of our staff.

Under the supervision of renowned experts in their fields, you'll become part of a dynamic, challenging and transformative research and scholarship community. One of our main strengths is the impact and influence of our research on the world around us – politically, linguistically, culturally and socially. We have broken new ground in a range of different subject areas, and these advances inform our MA programme.

Choosing to study with us is an opportunity to engage with diverse and highly-relevant topics concerned with Welsh and other languages, such as:

  • Welsh literature and literary criticism
  • Creative writing
  • Children’s literature
  • Sociolinguistics
  • Language acquisition
  • Dialectology
  • Language planning and policy
  • Translation theory and methodology

Recent MA students have undertaken original and penetrating research in several notable fields, including: linguistic landscape mapping; creative literary critcism; intertextual research and Welsh medieval literature; and digital technologies and minotiry languages.

You can study this programme through the medium of Welsh or English; or a combination of both.
