Byddwch yn cael tua 12 awr o ddarlithoedd a dosbarthiau tiwtorial bob wythnos. Byddwch yn treulio cryn dipyn o amser yn darllen, ymchwilio, ysgrifennu traethodau a pharatoi ar gyfer cyflwyniadau mewn tiwtorial.

Bydd rhai cyrsiau yn gwneud defnydd arbennig o ddogfennau, ffilm a rhaglenni dogfen yn ogystal â hanes llafar. Bydd eraill yn cynnwys teithiau i weld safleoedd perthnasol yng Nghymru a thu hwnt. Bydd y modiwlau Newyddiaduraeth yn cynnwys gwaith ymarferol.

The best aspect of both schools has to be the lecturers - each one I’ve met is extremely knowledgeable, always approachable, and clearly invested in the subjects they teach.
