Course content

Mae'r traethawd hir yn ddarn o ysgrifennu annibynnol ar destun a ddewisir gan yr ymgeisydd mewn ymgynghoriad ag aelod staff ac a gymeradwyir gan yr Bwrdd Arholi. Mae'r dewis a'r cymeradwyo hwn yn digwydd yn ystod tymor yr haf yn union cyn Blwyddyn 3. Dylai'r ysgrifennu gymryd i ystyriaeth ymchwil flaenorol berthnasol, ond dylai ddangos gwreiddioldeb meddwl o ran dull ymdrin a dadl. Rhoddir credyd am ansawdd syniadau, eglurder a rhesymeg dadl, dull cyflwyno, addasrwydd llyfryddiaeth a mireinder y cyflwyniad. I gyd-fynd a'r traethawd hir ceir seminarau bob pythefnos lle bydd y myfyrwyr yn gweithio gyda thiwtoriaid y modiwl ar y sgiliau ymchwil, llyfryddiaeth a methodoleg sydd eu hangen i ysgrifennu'r traethawd hir
