Mae graddedigion yr Adran yn mynd ymlaen i ddilyn gyrfaoedd disglair a llwyddiannus. Mae ein cwrs yn canolbwyntio ar helpu myfyrwyr i ddatblygu’r wybodaeth, y ddealltwriaeth a’r sgiliau sydd eu hangen er mwyn ennill swydd lewyrchus yn y dyfodol. Dengys yr ystadegau fod ein graddedigion yn llwyddo i gael swyddi proffesiynol o safon, a hynny o fewn ychydig fisoedd i raddio.

Mae dewis amrywiol o fodiwlau yn Abertawe. Mae gennym:

- fodiwlau iaith (e.e. Iaith a Chymdeithas; Cyfieithu; Gweithio mewn Dwy Iaith; Sgiliau Iaith);

- modiwlau llenyddiaeth (e.e. Drama’r Gymraeg; Canu Protest; O Ddafydd ap i Mererid Hopwood; Gwlad Beirdd a Storïwyr);

- modiwlau ar bolisi a chyfraith iaith (e.e. Statws y Gymraeg; Y Gymraeg, Datganoli a’r Gyfraith; Amlddiwylliannedd a’r Gymraeg).

Dyma farn rhai o’n cyn-fyfyrwyr:

“Fe wnes i wir fwynhau fy amser yn Adran y Gymraeg yn fawr iawn a llwyddais i wneud llawer o fodiwlau amrywiol. Roedd modd i mi ddysgu llu o sgiliau a fydd bob amser o gymorth yn fy ngyrfa. Mae’r Gymraeg yn agor cymaint o ddrysau amrywiol. Y penderfyniad gorau a wnes i oedd mynd i Abertawe i astudio’r Gymraeg. Mae’r staff mor gefnogol bob amser. Diolch Prifysgol Abertawe!” Rhiannon Lloyd, Heddlu Gwent

“’Does unman gwell i barhau gyda’ch astudiaethau nag Adran y Gymraeg, Prifysgol Abertawe. Mae’r Adran yn un glos a’r darlithwyr yn arbennig. Mae ymdeimlad cryf o gymuned yn yr Adran. Yn bersonol, rwy’n mwynhau ysgrifennu’n greadigol ac mae’n wych cael arbenigwyr yn Abertawe sy’n gallu fy helpu i ddatblygu fy nghrefft.” Matthew Tucker, sydd bellach yn fyfyriwr MA

Mae staff Adran y Gymraeg yn derbyn bri rhyngwladol am eu gwaith ymchwil. Yn yr asesiad REF diwethaf, barnwyd bod 100% o waith ymchwil yr Adran o safon ryngwladol neu’n uwch na hynny. Mae dau Brifardd ac enillwyr Llyfr y Flwyddyn ymhlith aelodau o staff yr Adran.

At hyn, mae ein campws dafliad carreg yn unig o’r traeth ac eto i gyd wedi ei leoli mewn dinas fywiog. Yn Abertawe, ceir y gorau o’r ddau fyd!
