Wrth ddewis astudio’r cwrs BA Anrhydedd Cyfun mewn Daearyddiaeth a Gwleidyddiaeth Ryngwladol ym Mhrifysgol Aberystwyth, byddi’n dewis astudio mewn dwy adran uchel iawn eu bri. Yr Adran Daearyddiaeth a Gwyddorau Daear yw un o’r adrannau mwyaf ei maint, a’r mwyaf byrlymus o’i math ym Mhrydain. Mae adnoddau gwych yn yr adran ar gyfer dysgu ac addysgu – sy’n berffaith i dy helpu i gael y canlyniadau gorau posibl ac i archwilio meysydd newydd a chyffrous. Mae Daearyddwyr yn astudio’r prosesau dynol a ffisegol sy’n ffurfio’r ddaear, a’r materion gwleidyddol ac amgylcheddol a gwyd yn sgîl rhyngweithio rhwng pobl a’r ddaear, ac o ddewis Aberystwyth byddi’n dewis un o’r mannau gorau posib i astudio Daearyddiaeth.

Yr Adran Gwleidyddiaeth Ryngwladol yw’r ganolfan orau yn y Deyrnas Gyfunol ar gyfer astudio cysylltiadau rhyngwladol. Mae’r adran hefyd yn gartref i Sefydliad Gwleidyddiaeth Cymru. Mae’r cyfuniad o ddysgu rhagorol ac ymchwil gyffrous yn creu profiad unigryw ac eithriadol yma, a hynny mewn awyrgylch gyfeillgar. Ceir cyfleoedd i ddatgblygu sgiliau trosglwyddadwy a fydd yn cynyddu dy gyfle am yrfa ac mae hyn oll wedi’i leoli mewn amgylchedd bywiog a chosmopolitaidd yng nghalon campws y Brifysgol.

Gan ein bod yn gymuned Ddaearyddiaeth fawr a deinamig, gallwn gynnig amrywiaeth eang iawn i chi o arbenigedd, cyfleoedd a chyfleusterau daearyddol:

+ Rhewlifeg;

+ Biodaearyddiaeth;

+ Newid Amgylcheddol Cwaternaidd;

Diben astudio gwleidyddiaeth yw edrych yn fanwl ar waith a phatrymau llywodraeth, ac yn bwysicach fyth, ar ganlyniadau’r gwaith a’r patrymau rheiny . Wrth astudio’r cwrs gradd Gwleidyddiaeth Ryngwladol a Gwleidyddiaeth Cymru byddi’n cyfuno’r astudiaeth o Wleidyddiaeth Ryngwladol â sylw arbennig i Wleidyddiaeth Cymru. Bydd elfen ryngwladol y cwrs yn amlwg yn delio â phob math o newidiadau byd-eang, yn economaidd, diwylliannol a gwleidyddol.

Mae Gwleidyddiaeth Ryngwladol yn bwnc cyffrous a rhyngddisgyblaethol sy’n cynnwys Gwleidyddiaeth, Hanes, Athroniaeth, y Gyfraith, Daearyddiaeth a Chymdeithaseg er mwyn ceisio deall y byd o’n cwmpas a’r problemau sy’n ei wynebu. Yn ogystal ag edrych ar waith a phatrymau llywodraeth, astudio’r syniadau sy’n sail i bob agwedd o rym a chymdeithas a chysyniadau sylfaenol megis rhyddid, cymuned, cyfiawnder, cydraddoldeb a hawliau, ceir cyfle hefyd ar y cwrs gradd hwn i ganolbwyntio ar ddatblygiadau gwleidyddol yng Nghymru, effaith datganoli ar Gymru ac ar ei sefyllfa o fewn y Deyrnas Gyfunol ac Ewrop.

Sefydlwyd yr Adran Gwleidyddiaeth Ryngwladol yn 1919 ar ddiwedd y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf, a dyma’r adran brifysgol gyntaf o’i bath, ac mae’n parhau i fod yn un o’r adrannau gwleidyddiaeth a chysylltiadau rhyngwladol mwyaf yn Ewrop, a chanddi dros 40 o staff academaidd.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The numbers of people taking politics degrees fell sharply last year and we'll keep an eye on this one - it can't really be because of graduates getting poor outcomes as politics grads do about as well as graduates on average. Most politics or international relations graduates don't actually go into politics - although many do, as activists, fundraisers and researchers. Jobs in local and central government are also important. Other popular jobs include marketing and PR, youth and community work, finance roles, HR and academic research (you usually need a postgraduate degree to get into research). Because so many graduates get jobs in the civil service, a lot of graduates find themselves in London after graduating. Politics is a very popular postgraduate subject, and so about one in five politics graduates go on to take another course - usually a one-year Masters - after they finish their degrees.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
