Philosophy and Welsh (BA)

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

The Joint Honours degree in Philosophy and Welsh provides you with the opportunity of specialising in two university honours subjects. Many students find joint honours both stimulating and rewarding as they observe both similarities and differences in the two subjects. Often there are complementary issues and perspectives as well as skills and that link the subjects, be they critical analysis, historical contexts or recent research. Each school involved in delivering the degree offers a challenging programme of modules, supported by a friendly atmosphere and excellent staff-student relationships. For fuller information about each of the subjects, please visit the two separate subject entries on Course Finder.

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”
