Mae’n gartref i gymuned frwdfrydig o fyfyrwyr ac ymchwilwyr sy’n rhannu’r nod o hybu dealltwriaeth ehangach o’r iaith Gymraeg, ei hanes, ei llenyddiaeth a’i lle yn y byd cyfoes. Mae’r staff sy’n dysgu ar y cwrs yn arbenigwyr mewn meysydd amrywiol ac o ganlyniad byddi’n cael dewis o amrywiaeth eang o bynciau sy’n dy ddiddori. Cwrs Cymraeg arloesol sydd yn dysgu sgiliau proffesiynol ar gyfer y gweithle yng Nghymru.

Rhan bwysig o waith Adran y Gymraeg ac Astudiaethau Celtaidd yw paratoi myfyrwyr ar gyfer y Gymru gyfoes a thu hwnt, a dyna a wnewn yn ystod eich cyfnod fel myfyriwr Cymraeg Proffesiynol. Yn y byd cyfoes mae cyflogwyr, yn ogystal â darpar fyfyrwyr a rhieni, yn chwilio am radd ‘safon aur’ yn y Gymraeg. Dyma’r radd honno. Ar y cwrs newydd yma byddwch chi’n datblygu sgiliau sy’n ymwneud â defnyddio’r iaith Gymraeg yn hyderus mewn ystod eang o gyd-destunau proffesiynol ac yn y gweithle. Byddwch chi’n cael eich dysgu gan staff sydd â phrofiad helaeth mewn meysydd fel cyfieithu, ysgrifennu creadigol, golygu a chyhoeddi, ac astudio a hybu treftadaeth. Fel adran rydym yn cynnal safonau sy’n gyson uchel ac yn cyflwyno cyrsiau deniadol, diddorol a pherthnasol i’n ffordd o weld Cymru a’r byd drwy’r Gymraeg.

Yn ystod eich cyfnod yn fyfyriwr gyda ni byddwch chi’n cael dewis o amrywiaeth helaeth o fodiwlau sy’n rhychwantu ystod eang o ddiddordebau, a byddwch chi’n dod yn rhan naturiol o’r bwrlwm sy’n gysylltiedig â’r Adran.

Cyflwynwyd y cwrs yma yn gyntaf yn 2012 ac mae wedi mynd o nerth i nerth ers hynny. Mae'r cwrs yn cael ei gyd-lynu gan Dr Rhianedd Jewell, darlithydd dynodedig y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol mewn Cymraeg Proffesiynol, sydd yn rhoi ei sylw yn arbennig i'r cwrs hwn.

Eleni, Aberystwyth sydd ar y brig o blith yr holl adrannau Cymraeg yn holiadur yr NSS o ran bodlonrwydd myfyrwyr. Enillodd yr Adran 100% am fodlonrwydd cyffredinol.

Mae gwerth arbennig i’r graddau a enillir yn Adran y Gymraeg gan fod safon ein hymchwil a’n dysgu gyda’r uchaf posib.
