Course description

Sefydlwyd Adran Gwleidyddiaeth Ryngwladol Aberystwyth ym 1919 a hi yw'r adran gyntaf o'i bath yn y byd. Rydym yn adnabyddus am ein hymchwil arloesol: ni yw'r adran orau yng Ngymru a'r seithfed yn y DU (FfRhY2014). Mae ein darlithwyr wedi ymrwymo i ragoriaeth mewn dysgu ac ymchwil, ac maent yn darparu amgylchedd dysgu deinamig arbennig i fyfyrwyr; yn wir, 92% yw ein ffigwr ar gyfer boddhad ein myfyrwyr yn safon y dysgu (Holiadur ACM 2015). Mae awyrgylch dysgu'r adran yn fywiog ac yn gosmopolitaidd ac rydym yn croesawu myfyrwyr o bedwar ban byd. Mae myfyrwyr yn dod atom i astudio pynciau fel diogelwch, strategaeth, ÃŽl-drefedigaethedd, gwleidyddiaeth leol, theori, moeseg, cyrff rhyngwladol, yn ogystal ag ystod o sialensiau cyfoes. Mae myfyrwyr hefyd yn gallu manteisio ar leoliadau yn San Steffan a Chaerdydd, ar gynlluniau cyfnewid â phrifysgolion ledled y byd, ac ar y gemau argyfwng blynyddol hynod boblogaidd. Bydd elfen Gymraeg eich gradd yn datblygu eich sgiliau er mwyn sicrhau eich bod yn gallu siarad ac ysgrifennu Cymraeg yn hyderus ac yn raenus. Bydd ein modiwlau syâ??n arbenigo mewn llenyddiaeth Gymraeg yn eich tywys trwy draddodiadau llenyddol cyfoethog ac amrywiol Cymru a hefyd yn hogi eich sgiliau beirniadol. Mae dewis helaeth o bynciau ar gael iâ??w hastudio: llenyddiaeth gyfoes, beirniadaeth lenyddol, ysgrifennu menywod, llenyddiaeth plant, hanes sosio-ieithyddol yr iaith Gymraeg, diwylliant Celtaidd, barddoniaeth a rhyddiaith yr Oesoedd Canol, yn ogystal â llenyddiaeth cyfnodau hanesyddol eraill. Os oes gennych ddiddordeb mewn datblygu eich sgiliau ysgrifennu eich hun, ar ffurf barddoniaeth neu ryddiaith, yna gallwch ddilyn modiwl ysgrifennu creadigol a fydd yn eich cefnogi i lunio portffolio gwreiddiol o waith creadigol. Os ydych yn mwynhau dysgu ieithoedd eraill, yna gallwch gael blas ar Lydaweg neu Wyddeleg i ddechreuwyr hefyd.

Most politics or international relations graduates don't actually go into politics - although many do, as activists, fundraisers and researchers. Other popular industries include marketing and PR, management consultancy, youth and community work, the finance industry and academic research (you usually need a postgraduate degree to get into research). Politics is a very popular postgraduate subject, and so about one in six politics graduates go on to take another course to get a Masters after they finish their degrees.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

As only a small number of students study this course, these stats refer to both the Gaelic and Celtic languages and study – over a third of the graduates in this area have studied Welsh. Not surprisingly, most graduates go to work in the regions they studied, so these subjects tend to lead to jobs in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and salaries reflect that, being a little lower than the graduate average. Graduates from Celtic studies subjects are also quite likely to go into teacher training when they graduate.
