Course programme

This qualification is specifically intended to meet the needs of students who have not previously studied the Welsh language and its literature, but who wish to work intensively on medieval literature while gaining a good degree of competence in Modern Welsh. Taught modules account for 120 credits, and the dissertation (up to 20,000 words, to be submitted within two years) accounts for the further 60 credits. Candidates study three core modules, The Four Branches of the Mabinogi, Welsh Language I and Welsh Language II, and two elective modules from among the following: The Earliest Welsh Poetry, The Englynion Cycles, Arthurian Literature, Dafydd ap Gwilym, and Comparative Celtic Literature. All these modules will normally be available, but it may be necessary occasionally to vary the list of elective choices.
