Drwy gyfuno’r Gymraeg a Newyddiaduraeth, byddwch yn ennill cyfoeth o wybodaeth a sgiliau trosglwyddadwy, gan agor drysau i amrywiaeth o lwybrau gyrfa.

Gall astudio gradd gydanrhydedd eich symbylu a rhoi boddhad, wrth ichi sylwi ar nodweddion tebyg a gwahaniaethau rhwng y ddau bwnc.

Mae cwrs y Gymraeg yn berthnasol i’r Gymru gyfoes ac yn cael ei ddysgu gan Ysgol sydd wedi’i chydnabod am ansawdd ac effaith ei hymchwil. Nod y cwrs yw cynhyrchu graddedigion sydd â dealltwriaeth drwyadl (yn academaidd ac yn ymarferol) o’r iaith Gymraeg, ei llenyddiaeth a’i diwylliant, lefel uchel o sgiliau ieithyddol ar lafar ac yn ysgrifenedig, a sgiliau cyflogadwyedd a chreadigol datblygedig sy’n berthnasol i’r Gymru fodern.

Mae’n cynnig modiwlau craidd a dewisol i roi sylfaen i chi o ran iaith a llenyddiaeth, yn ogystal â chyfle i arbenigo mewn meysydd sydd o ddiddordeb personol neu o ran eich gyrfa.

Nod cyffredinol Newyddiaduraeth yw arfogi myfyrwyr i ddod yn ddinasyddion gwybodus mewn cymdeithas sy’n orlawn o gyfryngau. Mae’n dechrau gyda'r rhagdybiaeth fod angen i ni ddeall y rôl ganolog a chwaraeir gan y cyfryngau a’r diwydiannau diwylliannol er mwyn deall cymdeithas fodern.

Byddwch yn gallu cymryd rhai modiwlau ymarferol, ond mae pwyslais y radd yn academaidd a dadansoddol.

SYLWER: Nid yw’r cwrs hwn ar gael i fyfyrwyr Cymraeg ail iaith. Bydd ymgeiswyr i'r radd hon fel arfer wedi astudio rhai cymwysterau ôl-16 drwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg. Os nad ydych wedi gwneud hynny ond eich bod yn teimlo bod eich Cymraeg o safon cyfatebol, anfonwch e-bost at cymraeg@caerdydd.ac.uk.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Journalism roles are very sought after, and competition fierce, and with the Internet disrupting business models, this is likely to continue. It's not impossible to get into roles with a first degree — quite a few do - but they can often be insecure or on a freelance basis, and a lot of jobs in journalism go to postgraduates. Unpaid work is not the norm for new journalists, but it’s rather more common than for other roles, as personal contacts and work experience are important ways for would-be journalists to get their target jobs. The skills you can gain from a journalism degree can be useful in a range of industries, and so grads from these courses can be found in a wide range of jobs - first degree graduates often get jobs in marketing and PR where their skills at drafting copy to deadlines are appreciated. London tends to dominate the jobs market for journalism graduates - a quarter of journalism graduates went to work there - but 2015 graduates found opportunities elsewhere, particularly in larger cities with good local media.

What about your long term prospects?

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