Mae nifer o fyfyrwyr o’r farn bod astudio gradd gydanrhydedd yn brofiad gwerth chweil gan eu bod yn gallu gweld yr hyn sy'n debyg ac yn wahanol rhwng y ddau bwnc. Trwy gyfuno'r Gymraeg ac Eidaleg, byddwch yn dysgu cyfoeth o sgiliau a gwybodaeth y gellir eu defnyddio mewn sawl maes. Bydd y rhain hefyd o les yn y byd gwaith byd-eang ac yn helpu agor y drysau i amrywiaeth o yrfaoedd posibl.

CYMRAEG

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 ichi o ran iaith a llenyddiaeth, yn ogystal â chyfle i arbenigo mewn meysydd sydd o ddiddordeb personol neu o ran eich gyrfa.

EIDALEG

Ers y cyfnod Rhufeinig, mae cyfraniad yr Eidal i ddiwylliant y byd wedi bod yn aruthrol fel y mae'n amlwg i unrhyw un sy'n ymweld â’r wlad, hyd yn oed am gyfnod byr. Ond nid yw’r Eidal yn wlad o bwysigrwydd diwylliannol eithriadol yn unig. Mae’r Eidal hefyd yn bartner gwleidyddol sylweddol yn yr Undeb Ewropeaidd, ac yn rym blaenllaw mewn meysydd fel peirianneg a phensaernïaeth. Dyma gartref y diwydiannau dylunio a ffasiwn.

Mae Eidaleg ym Mhrifysgol Caerdydd yn eich galluogi chi i astudio, dadansoddi a gwerthuso datblygiadau cyfredol ar draws y byd sy'n siarad Eidaleg, yn ogystal â diwylliannau a gwerthoedd y gorffennol. Wedi ichi astudio Eidaleg, byddwch chi’n barod i fanteisio ar y cyfleoedd eang sy’n agored i raddedigion yr iaith heddiw

Byddwch yn datblygu sgiliau iaith lefel uchel gyda'r nod o gyflawni cymwyseddau yn agos at safon frodorol ynghyd â gwybodaeth fanwl am agweddau ar ddiwylliant, hanes, gwleidyddiaeth a’r gymdeithas yn yr Eidal. Byddwch yn treulio eich trydedd flwyddyn yn yr Eidal, yn ymarfer ac yn datblygu eich sgiliau iaith.

Rydym yn cynnig Eidaleg i fyfyrwyr lefel uwch a dechreuwyr. O ran caffael iaith, bydd y cwrs hwn yn eich galluogi chi i ddatblygu eich sgiliau ysgrifennu, llafar a gwrando drwy amrywiaeth o weithgareddau dysgu, a chan ddefnyddio amrywiaeth o ddeunyddiau clyweledol. Yn eich blwyddyn gyntaf, yn ogystal â'ch gwersi iaith, bydd cyflwyniad i hanes a diwylliant yn ceisio darparu sylfaen gadarn ar gyfer astudiaethau mwy arbenigol wrth i chi ddilyn eich cwrs.

Mae'n bwysig cofio nad yw astudio ieithoedd yn golygu astudio’r iaith a dim arall. Mae'n golygu edrych ar sawl agwedd ar y wlad a'i diwylliant, ei strwythurau cymdeithasol a’i sefydliadau, ei gwleidyddiaeth, ei hanes, ei llenyddiaeth a'i sinema. Drwy astudio meysydd o'r fath rydych chi’n gallu cael dealltwriaeth well o ddiwylliant Eidalaidd a sut mae wedi esblygu dros y canrifoedd, gan ddatblygu i fod yr hyn ydyw heddiw.

Fel myfyriwr cydanrhydedd, fe welwch fod meysydd a safbwyntiau yn aml sy'n cysylltu pynciau, boed yn ddadansoddiad beirniadol, yn gyd-destunau hanesyddol neu'n ymchwil diweddar.

Mae pob ysgol sy’n gysylltiedig â chyflwyno’r radd yn cynnig cwrs heriol o fodiwlau, sydd wedi’i gefnogi gan awyrgylch cyfeillgar a chysylltiadau rhagorol rhwng y staff a’r myfyrwyr.

Ar ôl cwblhau’r rhaglen bedair blynedd hon, bydd gennych hyfedredd iaith lefel uchel yn ogystal â dealltwriaeth feirniadol o agweddau allweddol o lenyddiaeth, diwylliant, gwleidyddiaeth a chymdeithas gyfoes Cymreig ac Eidaleg.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is one of the less common modern languages for students to take, but graduates from Italian courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their degrees. About one in five graduates from 2015 got jobs overseas — often as English teachers — which is much higher than for most subjects, and higher than previous years. Nearly half of the rest went to work in London. Those who want to stay at home to work usually find jobs anywhere where good communication skills are a must — and in 2015, that included education, marketing and finance. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

As only a small number of students study this course, these stats refer to both the Gaelic and Celtic languages and study — over 40% of the graduates in this area have studied Welsh and another quarter studied Irish Gaelic. 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.

What about your long term prospects?

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