MA Welsh and Celtic Studies on YouTube

Our MA Welsh and Celtic Studies programme is an innovative degree which offers you the opportunity to engage with a wide-ranging and stimulating subject area, through the medium of Welsh or English.

It is a flexible programme, where you explore the relationship between literature, language, culture and identity, but the exact course content is tailored to your individual research interests and matched to our areas of expertise. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Welsh literature through the ages
  • creative writing and critical writing
  • children’s literature
  • language policy and planning
  • translation theory and methodology
  • identity, ethnicity and multiculturalism.

Working with leading experts in these fields will allow you to develop advanced academic skills in your chosen area of study and undertake original research. Examples of ground-breaking MA research in recent years include linguistic landscape mapping, creative literary criticism, intertextuality and medieval Welsh literature, and digital technologies and minority languages.

Originally from New York, my interest in Welsh literature from the Middle Ages was behind my decision to take the MA Welsh and Celtic Studies at the School of Welsh, Cardiff University. The University’s facilities and the School staff have contributed significantly to what I believe is the most valuable academic experience of my life.
