FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE CELTIC STUDIES: • This unique distance-learning programme allows you to study a wide variety of modules on aspects of the fascinating history, literature and cultural heritage of the Celtic regions in the comfort of your own home • The programme is taught by staff who specialise in the field of Celtic Studies at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS) • Innovative immersive teaching in small groups and one-to-one tutorials • Space for independent thinking and opportunities to pursue your own favourite topics and interests • Chance to combine your studies with modules from other humanities subjects
Some of the world’s leading experts in the field of Celtic Studies have come together to produce an innovative programme that tutors students in topics such as the early Celts, the druids and Celtic religions, the social histories of the Celtic languages, Celtic hagiography and saints’ cults, classic Celtic literature and folktales, medieval Welsh prose and poetry, representations of Brittany and Cornwall, Welsh and Celtic place names, religious revival in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Wales and the influence of Celtic mythology on contemporary writing. No previous knowledge of the Celtic languages is required for this programme, as students study texts in translation and the programme is taught through the medium of English. However, students may choose to learn Welsh as part of the programme and it is also possible for students who are fluent in Welsh to study their modules entirely through the medium of Welsh (see BA Astudiaethau Celtaidd). Students will develop an understanding of the distinctive features and linguistic concepts that define ‘Celtic’ as a language family and how this concept was influentially extended to the realms of literature, archaeology, art, music and cultural identity.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
