Welsh for Beginners | Bachelor's degree | Languages | On Campus | 4 years | Bangor University | United Kingdom

From Welsh American literature to medieval legends and the modern novel; from creative writing to work experience and professional development: a degree in Welsh gives you a unique perspective on our country's culture and the wider world. Welsh is a subject for students from every background. This new 4-year course has been designed for those who do not yet speak a word of Welsh. Concentrating in the first year on acquiring spoken modern Welsh, from the second year onwards greater focus will be placed on writing skills and students will increasingly be taught with second- and first-language students. During the third and fourth years students will follow the main Welsh BA degree scheme with all modules taught through the medium of Welsh. The specially designed foundation year (Year 1) has been designed for beginners and unconfident speakers and focuses on practical skills. Through the course of your studies there will be a gradual increase in the amount of Welsh-medium teaching, with modules specifically designed to facilitate the cross-over being a learner to becoming a confident speaker. What is Welsh? Welsh is a broad and varied academic subject that includes the language and its literature, from its historic beginnings to the present day. Along with some core elements, students are able to choose from a range of optional modules, which provide you with the opportunity to develop specific interests, from pure literature to issues relating to the workplace, for example: Welsh poetry and prose of all kinds, from all periods The novel Local and community literature Medieval legends Drama and the theatre - in Wales and beyond American Welsh literature Cultural studies and literary criticism Feminist and gender writing Literature and new media Translation (literary and administrative) Literature philosophy ('What is literature?') Sociolinguistics and language planning Celtic Studies and Irish Creative writing is very prominent at Bangor. From among our lecturers,
