    Welsh and Philosophy, Ethics and Religion


    This is a course that allows you to enjoy the wealth of Welsh literature, drama and creative culture and consider some of life's deepest questions at the same time. What is being? How can moral principles be discovered? Can the existence of God be proved - or to the contrary? Students who enjoy creative writing can take part in poetry and prose workshops, and there are also specific modules to refine your professional writing skills. You will split your time equally between studying specific modules in Welsh and others in Philosophy, Ethics and Religion.

    The entire course gives you the opportunity to build on your experiences and open new doors. You will learn new critical skills to respond with originality to literature, and you will also see the relevance of the Welsh tradition to some of the most important and challenging ideas developed over the centuries, worldwide. Take a fresh look at creative works from one of Europe's richest literary traditions, from heroic poetry, the tales of the Mabinogion and the poetry of masters such as Dafydd ap Gwilym, to the cutting edge and challenging works of the later period, from the ecumenical and the ephemeral and feminist to scientific and Welsh literature in America. Consider how Welsh language writers around the world have responded to the demands of the ages, creating shocking, challenging and beautiful works. Enjoy these alongside learning more about analytical and continental philosophy, and religions from the Eastern and Western traditions.

    From the novel, to the drama, to the language of the most experimental media and art; from philosopher to theologian and political pamphleteer, this degree gives you the opportunity to better understand the meaning of thinking, and how to express that thought. You can apply that understanding, while gaining skills that are practical as well as analytical.
