Management studies

Welsh language

The BSc Business Management with Welsh is an innovative and modern course, designed to combine the main elements of a Business Management degree with the study of the Welsh language and its culture, preparing students for opportunities within the changing labour market in Wales. This combination is intended to enhance the range of professional employment opportunities open to graduates whilst also allowing a multidisciplinary approach and broad scope in conjunction with Welsh language modules, and allow flexible options for students who want to pursue different subjects with language skills.

Through your study of Business Management you will gain a thorough knowledge of the main disciplines relevant to management and business together with an appreciation of the different functional areas involved in business organisations. You will therefore develop a solid core of knowledge in the area of business management that will allow you to build on strong foundations to specialise in areas that you find interesting and that reflect your career aspirations. In studying Welsh you will develop high-level skills in the language itself as well as gaining a thorough understanding of its place in contemporary Wales. After the first year you will have the opportunity to specialize by choosing from a range of optional modules. These cover a variety of fields of particular relevance to business and management including language planning and policy, the sociology of language, sociolinguistics, language technology, and professional translation, as well as literary, linguistic and cultural topics.

The Business School offers provision for students who want to pursue a career in business and management reflecting the breadth of our research expertise and current developments in the business world. Our Business Management degrees offer a suite of programmes and this new scheme adds to our portfolio enabling students the opportunity to study Welsh alongside Business Management.

Welsh is a dynamic and varied discipline, and the wide range of specialist modules on offer by the School reflects its richness. The study of Welsh includes many areas that naturally complement the study of business and management, such as language planning (in the public, private and third sectors), language policy and language technology.

Another valuable aspect of the School’s undergraduate provision is the way in which literary, cultural and creative modules emphasize the wider cultural context of the Welsh language. Modules in fields such as creative writing, children’s literature, and heritage and tourism combine specialist subject knowledge, the cultural context and relevant skills in order to enrich students’ understanding of Welsh in contemporary Wales. Such modules could be particularly relevant for students who might wish to develop careers in the creative, publishing or heritage industries, for instance.

The School of Welsh also offers a range of literary, cultural and creative modules for students who might wish to develop careers in the publishing or heritage industries, for instance.

The undergraduate provision in Welsh is designed to be relevant to contemporary Wales and is delivered by a school noted for its research quality and impact. The School of Welsh aims to produce highly-skilled bilingual graduates who have a thorough understanding of the Welsh language, its culture and its place in a modern society.

The Business Management with Welsh programme will equip graduates with well-developed employability and creative skills, combined with a bilingual business acumen that is highly valued in today's competitive workplace.

Students on this programme will be eligible to apply for Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol’s Incentive Scholarships of £500 a year as they will be studying at least 33% (40 credits a year) of the scholarship subject through the medium of Welsh.
