Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

This programme provides an informed insight and understanding of the political landscape of Wales. Due to devolution and distinctive historical and cultural factors, Welsh politics is a fascinating and fast-evolving topic of study. The course benefits from close links with the institutions of devolved government in Wales.

The changing political and legal landscape in Wales poses exciting and challenging questions for those with an academic or professional interest in politics and policy.

This course of study is designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of the institutions and practices of governance in post-devolution Wales. In addition to focusing on politics and governance in Wales, the course locates developments in Wales in a broader UK and European context, providing also an overview of relationships between the various levels of governance. The course is taught by the leading experts in Welsh politics and government and benefits from the close links that exist between Cardiff University and the institutions of devolved government in Wales.

The MSc Econ in Welsh Government and Politics provides an informed insight into, and understanding of, the emerging Welsh polity, a polity based on distinctive historical and cultural factors, a fast evolving constitutional dispensation, new policy-making processes, and still developing civil society capacity.

The relevance of the scheme is not confined to Wales. Issues relating to shared sovereignty and multi-level governance are central to contemporary political debates and the Welsh case provides a fascinating case study of broader trends in European and global governance.

Nodweddion unigryw

The MScEcon in Welsh Government and Politics offers close proximity to the main institutions of Welsh governance and opportunities to take advantage of the School’s close links to the Welsh Centre for International Affairs and the United Nations Association (Wales).

You will be learning in a School ranked in the top 100 world-wide.

Euogfarnau troseddol

You are not required to complete a DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check or provide a Certificate of Good Conduct to study this course.

If you are currently subject to any licence condition or monitoring restriction that could affect your ability to successfully complete your studies, you will be required to disclose your criminal record. Conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • access to computers or devices that can store images
  • use of internet and communication tools/devices

Strwythur y cwrs

You will take compulsory and optional modules offered by the School of Law and Politics (subject to any pre-requisite conditions, accommodation, timetable or other constraints that may apply in that particular year) and complete a dissertation. 

The course is delivered in two stages.  Stage One (the taught component) runs over two years and comprises 15 and 30 credit compulsory and optional modules.  You will be taught and assessed in your modules during each semester.

Stage Two comprises the dissertation.  You will progress to the dissertation upon successful completion of Stage One.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

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?

Study for a Master’s degree is intensive and challenging and it is important that you take full advantage of the teaching that is provided in order to succeed.  Attendance at classes and dissertation supervisions is compulsory; we will expect you to undertake self-directed study, be well prepared by completing the required reading and participate fully in classes. 

You will be taught through lectures and seminars which are designed to assist you to analyse and evaluate ideas and information from guided reading.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

You will be assessed mainly by essay and unseen written examination.  Other forms of assessment include seminar presentations, class tests and book and article reviews.

Summative assessments count towards your degree. Your marks in these assessments count towards your formal progression from Stage One (taught modules) to Stage Two (the dissertation), and towards the determination of your final award.  The dissertation comprises the Stage Two summative assessment.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

The School of Law and Politics will support you in improving your study and research skills with dedicated classes at the beginning of each semester. 

All modules are supported by Learning Central, a virtual learning environment that is available on and off campus through which you will access a wide range of materials for your modules.

You will receive pastoral support through our personal tutor scheme and academic staff have dedicated office hours to meet with you to discuss any learning queries. You are welcome to attend our programme of visiting speakers and guest lectures.   A designated Disability and Diversity Officer ensures that reasonable adjustments are made for students with disabilities. 

The University has a range of services to support you, including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service and excellent libraries with specialist subject librarians and resource centres.  The University also offers writing skills support for students whose first language is not English.

Feedback

Feedback is given orally during seminars and you will receive written feedback on your summative coursework. Feedback will help you identify strengths and weaknesses in your learning, as well how you might improve your performance. 

Written feedback will be made available no later than four weeks from the submission of your assessment.

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

Postgraduate students are expected to assume a greater responsibility for their education than undergraduates.  Through your Master’s degree, you will acquire and develop a range of valuable skills, both discipline specific and more generic employability skills.

During the course you will be able to extend your communication and presentation skills, both oral and written and develop collaborative skills.  You will enhance your analytical skills, be able to develop a reasoned argument and reflect on your own learning by making use of constructive feedback. 

You will be encouraged to work independently and develop your research skills by seeking relevant materials from a variety of sources, evaluating this evidence to develop a reasoned argument.  You will reflect upon empirical and theoretical issues and critically evaluate current research.
