About the School of Welsh and Celtic Studies

There has never been a more exciting time to study Welsh. There is a growing demand from employers for graduates who have a qualification in the Welsh language.

Contribution to Welsh scholarship

The School of Welsh and Celtic Studies is one of great eminence. From its foundation more than a century ago it has made an immense contribution to Welsh scholarship, literature and culture. Indeed, many scholarly studies in Celtic in several countries are based on work carried out at Bangor.

Single and Joint Honours

Not only does the School of Welsh and Celtic Studies offer single and joint honours degrees for undergraduates but also the chance to study a degree in Welsh as a second language.

High quality education

Bangor University has a reputation for high quality education and a number of the department’s students decide to stay on for a postgraduate course. 


Many of our graduates have made their mark as lecturers, authors and poets after receiving an excellent start at the School of Welsh.
