Course content

Develop a critical understanding of the Celtic world in this interdisciplinary programme drawing on archaeological, historical, literary and mythological sources.

Overview

Develop a critical understanding of the Celtic world in this interdisciplinary programme drawing on archaeological, historical, literary and mythological sources.

Studying in a modern Celtic capital with experts from Archaeology, English, History and Welsh, you are additionally well-placed to access key specialist collections and western Britain’s major Celtic sites.

You will be able to critically assess the work of others and of your own, to engage effectively in debate at an advanced level, to plan, design and carry out a coherent research strategy, and to produce detailed and coherent reports and presentations.

The wide-range of transferable skills acquired are a particular strength for the pursuit of careers outside of archaeology and the heritage sector.

You will develop a critical understanding of people to whom the term Celtic has been applied, from the earliest European evidence through to the historical and literary evidence of early medieval Britain.

Distinctive features

  • Detailed concentration on the Celtic world
  • Literary, historical and archaeological approaches
  • Opportunities for interdisciplinary approaches
  • Expert supervision of dissertation topics
  • You may have the opportunity to build on your existing skill-set through participation in projects and excavations.
  • Specialist library facilities.
  • Cardiff's location in western Britain makes it geographically central to much of the material under discussion.

Learning and assessment

How will I be taught?

You will be taught through a mix of seminars, lectures and tutorials (depending on modules chosen). 

On successful completion of the taught elements of the programme you will progress to a dissertation of up to 20,000 words on a topic or theme of your choice (subject to the approval of your supervisor). 

Teaching is through the medium of English though there are many opportunities to learn Welsh.

How will I be supported?

You are assigned your own Personal Tutor.

We offer one-to-one time in set office hours during teaching weeks, and also welcome email contact. Additionally, you can make appointments to see your personal tutor or module leaders on a one-to-one basis about any issues. Our Professional Services team is also available for advice and support.

Your personal tutor is your contact point to discuss any problems arising from the course. Further queries should be addressed to the Course Director.
