Mae ein rhaglen MA Ieithyddiaeth Fforensig arloesol yn rhoi’r theori a’r technegau sydd eu hangen arnoch i ddadansoddi defnydd iaith mewn cyd-destunau cyfreithiol, gwerthuso tystiolaeth arbenigol ar faterion fforensig yn feirniadol ac ystyried rôl arbenigedd mewn systemau cyfreithiol mewn ffordd fwy cyffredinol.

Gan archwilio materion sy’n ymwneud â chyfiawnder, tegwch a chydraddoldeb yn y gyfraith, bydd y rhaglen hon yn eich cyflwyno i agweddau ieithyddol y system cyfiawnder troseddol, gan gynnwys plismona a’r ystafell llys.

Byddwch yn craffu ar waith llygad dystion arbenigol ac ymgynghorwyr ieithyddol ar iaith a chyfraith. Gan ystyried rôl yr ieithydd yn y system gyfreithiol, byddwch yn archwilio effaith ieithyddiaeth ar ymchwiliadau troseddol. Yn wir, byddwch chi’n cynnal arsylwad ethnograffig o achosion llys yn Llys y Goron Caerdydd yn rhan o’ch modiwl craidd.

Gan feithrin arena academaidd rhyngwladol ar gyfer ymchwil arloesol, rydym yn cynnal trafodaethau gan academyddion gwadd o bob rhan o’r byd, yn ogystal â phreswylfeydd ymchwil uwch ac ysgolion haf achlysurol.

Euogfarnau troseddol

Strwythur y cwrs

The MA in Forensic Linguistics is a modular programme.

You take two years to complete the Master’s programme, taking three modules in each year of the two years. On completion of the taught stage, you progress to researching and writing your dissertation (May to January).

Stage one is comprised of taught modules while stage two involves a 15,000-20,000 word dissertation. Assessment of the taught component is by coursework only.

The part-time modular programme involves following the same modules over two years with the dissertation being completed between May and January.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

Blwyddyn un

You will take three of your stage one modules in year one.

Blwyddyn dau

You will take three of your stage one modules in year two before moving onto your dissertation.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Core knowledge and understanding is delivered via lectures and small-group seminars.

The teaching for core modules combines discussion of theoretical issues and practical challenges raised by the forensic setting, while the teaching for optional modules provides further theoretical discussion with some focus on the development of practical research skills. Sessions rely on your good preparation.

Core knowledge and understanding are also delivered via one-to-one or very small group supervision of individual projects.

Intellectual Skills are promoted via lectures, seminars and group discussions, as well as small-group supervision and guidance for research undertaken in a small, team research project.

The learning activities will vary from module to module as appropriate, but will usually include interactive discussions of prepared texts/topics and, in some cases, student-led presentations.

Encouraged to explore our excellent library resources, you are expected to undertake preparation including wide-ranging reading to enable full participation.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

The programme will be assessed by such means as essays, data analyses, critical reviews, posters and oral presentation. Emphasis in assessment is placed on critical and conceptual sophistication as well as on the production of clear, persuasive and scholarly work presented in a professional manner and submitted on time.

Formative work is offered for one of the modules, in which you may undertake forms of assessment that may be new to you. Other modules offer a series of assignments with the express intention that you might learn cumulatively. Elsewhere, you are encouraged to consult the relevant module leader on the main ideas and plans for your assignments.

Modules are assessed on the basis of analytical descriptions of texts or other media and/or discursive essays. You will be encouraged to choose your own texts for analysis, or even to collect original data, and to relate your analyses to areas of personal interest or experience.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

The Course Coordinator for the MA in Forensic Linguistics will provide a contact point for all students to discuss problems, if any, arising from the course.

In addition you will be provided with a Personal Tutor. You will be encouraged to consult with them about topics from module choice to review of feedback on work and careers decisions.

All staff hold weekly office hours during teaching weeks and students may make appointments to see their Personal Tutor and Module Leaders one-to-one about any issues. Staff may also be contacted by email. Details of the office hours and email addresses of staff are provided.

Feedback

You are specifically encouraged to discuss your feedback on your assessed work with your Personal Tutor in order to reflect on your learning and to articulate areas for improvement as clearly as possible.

Discussion of assignments is offered and written feedback is provided on summative assessment.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

Many of the learning outcomes involve practising skills that are transferable to numerous areas of employment.

In addition, you will practise and develop the ability to:

  • communicate effectively with others via writing, speech and other means;
  • think carefully and systematically about problems;
  • synthesise a range of information efficiently;
  • use electronic and other sources of information as appropriate to a range of tasks;
  • plan and manage time effectively;
  • take responsibility for your own learning programme and professional development.

You will develop practical skills through seminar presentations and discussion, workshops on developing transcription skills, making presentations and poster presentations and through group project work.

Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith

Graduates have gone on to further study (e.g. a PhD or law degree) or have pursued careers in a number of relevant areas such as policing, the courts and Government as well as careers in areas without a forensic connection.

Employers for graduates from this programme include: local government departments, police forces, secondary schools, language schools, universities, banks, solicitors and utility companies.

Career destinations include: crime intelligence analyst, crime analyst, specialist police interviewer, emergency call handler, lawyer, lecturer, teacher, programme administrator, research assistant, PR executive, marketing executive and writer.

Graduates from this programme also move on to non-legal careers and find that the legal and linguistic focus of their studies provides their employers with something a little unusual. Graduates in the job market have also benefited from the training in processing and using information thoughtfully, writing effectively and speaking convincingly which is essential to good postgraduate study.
