Trosolwg y cwrs

Mae ein gradd Iaith Saesneg ac Ieithyddiaeth yn cyfuno'r astudiaeth systematig o'r gallu dynol ar gyfer iaith yn ei holl fynegiannau ar draws y byd gyda ffocws ychwanegol ar yr iaith Saesneg.

Byddwch yn dysgu am bob agwedd ar iaith ddynol a sut mae gwybodaeth ieithyddol yn cael ei chaffael, ei chynhyrchu a'i deall mewn cyd-destunau gwahanol. . Byddwch yn darganfod yr hyn sy’n gyffredin i bob iaith, yr hyn sy'n eu gwahaniaethu a sut maent yn newid dros amser. Byddwch hefyd yn dod i werthfawrogi amrywiaethau mewn iaith, gan gynnwys newidiadau hanesyddol, acenion, cyweiriau cymdeithasol penodol yn ogystal â gwahaniaethau rhwng iaith lafar ac ysgrifenedig.

Gan feithrin sgiliau gwella gyrfa, byddwch yn dod yn fedrus wrth gynhyrchu testunau amlfoddol (meddyliwch am wefannau, blogiau a gorchuddion cylchgronau) gan ddefnyddio pecynnau meddalwedd penodol. Byddwch yn dysgu sgiliau o ddadansoddi data rhifiadol neu leferydd yn Saesneg i ddehongli patrymau mewn casgliadau mawr o iaith ysgrifenedig a/neu lafar a elwir yn gorpora.

Mae gennym fodiwlau arbenigol gyda gyrfaoedd mewn addysg, yn y cyfryngau, ym maes iechyd, a’r broses gyfreithiol mewn golwg.  Mae ein cymuned yn groesawgar, yn rhyngwladol ei safbwynt ac yn gartref i'r Ganolfan Ymchwil Iaith a Chyfathrebu a berchir yn fyd-eang. Rydym yn ymfalchïo yn y ffaith ein bod yn meithrin amgylchedd cyfeillgar, personol a chefnogol, gan eich cefnogi drwy gynnal cyfarfodydd un-i-un yn rheolaidd.

Mae astudio am radd mewn iaith Saesneg a Ieithyddiaeth yn datblygu galluoedd i ddadansoddi a beirniadu'r iaith sydd o'n hamgylch ond mae hefyd yn helpu i ddatblygu sgiliau cadarn. Mae ein graddedigion yn adnabyddus am eu gallu i gyfuno'r gorau o'r Dyniaethau (fel cyfathrebu'n effeithiol) gyda'r gorau o sgiliau gwyddoniaeth gymdeithasol (dadansoddiad technegol drwy drin data yn systematig ac yn feirniadol er enghraifft).

Strwythur y cwrs

In each year of the Programme, you will take Modules to the value of 120 credits, totalling 360 credits for the three years of your degree.

You must pass each academic year before being allowed to proceed. The classification of your degree is based on the grades you achieve in years two and three.

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

Blwyddyn un

The first year consists of 60 credits, which must include 40 credits in the two linked core modules. These modules cover all the essential tools of linguistic analysis and introduce you to the basic skills needed for the next five years of your degree Programme.

The remaining 20 credits are chosen from a list of optional modules, with options available in English Literature and/or Philosophy in addition to English Language.

Blwyddyn tri

In your third year you will again study 60 credits. This will include 40 credits from compulsory modules, together with a 20 credit optional module from a choice of four or more relevant modules and a range of other options in English language and linguistics.

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 caf fy addysgu?

A diverse range of teaching and learning styles is used throughout the programme. You will attend lectures, participate in seminars and carry out independent research in preparation for each session. Modules usually last one semester and mostly consist of two lectures and one seminar per week, as well as independent study.

The learning activities will vary from module to module as appropriate, but may include such activities as: interactive lectures, seminar discussions of prepared texts/topics, student presentations or  group presentations and small-group work within seminars. You are expected to do the reading and other relevant preparation to enable you to take a full part in these activities and are encouraged to explore the resources of the library as appropriate.
If you choose to take a Dissertation or Extended dissertation in Year three you will do independent research on a topic of interest to you, with regular help and supervision from a lecturer with expertise in that topic area. 

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor who will help you reflect on your performance on the course and advise you on study techniques, module selection and career planning (in conjunction with the University’s Career Service). They will also provide a first point of contact if you experience any difficulties.  Each semester, you will have a scheduled “Academic Progress and Personal Development Meeting” with your personal tutor.

We have a designated Employability, Internships and Placements Officer, who ensures that any work experience and placement opportunities are advertised to all students. Another member of academic staff acts as Disability and Diversity Officer and ensures that reasonable adjustments are made for students with disabilities. There is also a Study Abroad Coordinator who facilitates the option of spending part of your study at an institution abroad.

All modules make extensive use of the University’s Virtual Learning Environment, Learning Central, where you can access discussion forums and find course materials including, for example, links to core readings and other relevant materials, online tests, past exam papers and examples of student work from previous years.

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, and excellent libraries and resource centres.  

Feedback

We’ll provide you with frequent feedback on your work. This comes in a variety of formats including oral feedback during tutorials, personalised feedback on written work, feedback lectures, generic written feedback and feedback on tutorial performance

Coursework will be marked by your module tutor and your tutor will give you written feedback on your work. You will also have a feedback class after each assessment.

You will be given general feedback in relation to examinations following the May/June examination period and you will be able to discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor as part of the monitored student self-assessment scheme.

Sut caf fy asesu?

A range of formative and summative assessment methods are used, including essays, examinations, presentations, portfolios and creative assignments.

Essays and examinations are used not only for assessment purposes but also as a means of developing your capacities to gather, organise, evaluate and deploy relevant information and ideas from a variety of sources in reasoned arguments. Dedicated essay workshops and individual advice enable you to produce your best work, while written feedback on essays feeds forward into future work, enabling you to develop your strengths and address any weaker areas.

The optional final-year dissertation provides you with the opportunity to investigate a specific topic of interest to you in depth and to acquire detailed knowledge about a particular field of study, to use your initiative in the collection and presentation of material and present a clear, cogent argument and draw appropriate conclusions.
