Astudiaethau Plentyndod ac Ieuenctid a Chymdeithaseg BA (Cydanrhydedd)
Mae Astudiaethau Plentyndod yn addas ar gyfer rhai sydd â diddordeb mewn gweithio â phlant a phobl ifanc ond nad ydynt eto wedi penderfynu ar lwybr gyrfa. Byddwch yn astudio modiwlau arloesol, a arweinir gan staff profiadol, i ddatblygu eich dealltwriaeth o hanes plentyndod, hawliau plant, natur plentyndod a swyddogaeth oedolion sy’n gweithio â phlant mewn cyd-destun cenedlaethol, Ewropeaidd a rhyngwladol. Byddwch yn gwneud gwaith astudio academaidd ym meysydd seicoleg, cymdeithaseg, polisi cymdeithasol, addysg, iechyd a lles yn ymwneud â bywydau plant. Diffinnir ‘Plentyndod’ fel bywyd plentyn o’i flynyddoedd cynnar i flynyddoedd yr arddegau, ac mae cynnwys y rhaglen yn canolbwyntio ar dair prif thema Plentyndod:
- Y Plentyn a’i (d)datblygiad;
- Y Plentyn a chymdeithas;
- Y Plentyn a byd addysg.
Bydd y rhaglen drwyddi draw yn hyrwyddo sgiliau astudio a dealltwriaeth ar gyfer gwneud ymchwil i faterion yn ymwneud â phlentyndod.
Mae agwedd Cymdeithaseg y cwrs yn ystyried natur gymdeithasol ein bywydau ac yn craffu ar berthynas pobl a grwpiau â’i gilydd. Mae’r cwrs yn gofyn y cwestiynau mawr megis: sut mae cymdeithas yn cael ei threfnu, beth yw pwrpas y trefniadau yna a phwy sydd ar ei ennill?
Byddwn yn ystyried beth sy’n gwneud ein cymdeithas ni yng Nghymru ac Ewrop yn wahanol i gymdeithasau eraill ar draws y byd? Byddwn hefyd yn olrhain newidiadau mewn cymdeithas. Er mwyn ein cynorthwyo i lunio atebion byddwn yn cyflwyno y damcaniaethau mwyaf blaenllaw fel eich bod chi yn medru beirniadu a dod i’ch canlyniadau chi eich hun.

Opportunities at Bangor
The University’s Skills and Employability Service provides a wide range of resources to help you achieve your graduate ambitions. Developing your personal skills and enhancing your employability while at university is becoming increasingly important in today’s job market.
The Bangor Employability Award (BEA) and Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)
The Bangor Employability Award enables students to build on their transferable skills through the recognition of activities they become involved in during their university life. Students can gain points towards the award through extra-curricular activities such as volunteering, attending workshops or actively participating in the Students’ Union’s clubs and societies.
The HEAR is a final graduation report that all undergraduates receive. The report itemises all academic achievements and additional extra and co-curricular achievements. Academic achievements appear on the report automatically and students are able to note their eligible activities by using the online platform ‘My Employability Hub’. This ensures that future employers are made aware of the additional skills the student has gained outside of the curriculum.
The Award is open to everyone and taking part in the scheme can make a major difference to your performance in the graduate job market.
Bangor University runs undergraduate and postgraduate internship schemes twice a year, which allow students to work in a professional environment while learning relevant skills and earning money.
Internships offer valuable experience in a professional workplace and there are a range of internships you can get involved in.
Not only is volunteering worthwhile – it also improves your employability and widens your experience.
The Students’ Union has a dedicated Student Volunteering Office (SVB) which currently contributes a total of 600 hours each week, promoting a close relationship between the university and the local community. Find out more on the Student Volunteering pages of the Bangor Student’s Union website.
