Mathematics and Welsh (BA)

  • QG51

3 years (Full-time) / n/a (Part-time) / n/a (Distance / E-Learning)

Mathematics and Welsh BA (Joint Honours) gives students the opportunity to combine Welsh – a language experiencing a resurgence within Wales and beyond - with the challenging study of Mathematics at degree level. Students will be encouraged to actively pursue their own areas of interest through the highly flexible modular programmes, leading to the development of transferable and vital skills for a graduate workforce.

This course is only open to prospective students who have studied Welsh as a First Language to Advanced Level. The reason for this is that students who have studied Welsh as a second language must study 80 credits of Welsh during their first year. The exciting, intensive nature of the course, and the number of face to face contact hours means that the timetable does not therefore allow for some subject to be studied with Welsh. If you do not have A level Welsh, and/or feel that you may be able to follow the First Language Welsh route, whatever your background or qualifications, don’t hesitate to contact cymraeg@cardiff.ac.uk

“Mae’r cwrs hwn yn agored i ddarpar fyfyrwyr sydd wedi astudio’r Gymraeg fel Iaith Gyntaf hyd at Safon Uwch. Mae hyn oherwydd bod myfyrwyr sydd wedi astudio’r Gymraeg fel Ail Iaith yn astudio 80 credyd o Gymraeg yn ystod eu blwyddyn gyntaf gyda ni. Mae natur ddwys, gyffrous y cwrs hwn, a nifer uchel yr oriau cyswllt wyneb-yn-wyneb, yn golygu nad yw’r amserlen yn caniatáu I rai pynciau gael eu hastudio ar y cyd â’r Gymraeg. Os nad oes gennych lefel A yn y Gymraeg, a/neu rydych yn teimlo y gallech ddilyn Llwybr Iaith Gyntaf, peidiwch ag oedi rhag cysylltu â cymraeg@caerdydd.ac.uk”
