Course content

The MA Bilingualism and Multilingualism takes full advantage of the rich linguistic experience offered by Wales' own bilingual context, as well as Trinity Saint David University's long established expertise within this field. The University of Wales: Trinity Saint David is a part of an extended network of institutions across Europe where bilingualism, multilingualism and language planning is an everyday phenomenon.

Since the National Assembly for Wales was established in 1999, there has been a renewed focus on safeguarding and revitalising the Welsh language within communities across Wales. Indeed, the creation of a bilingual society is a key theme within the Assembly Government's strategy for Wales. The MA Bilingualism and Multilingualism aims to place these exciting national developments in their historical, political, social, and international contexts.

This was the first degree of its kind to be offered in Europe as part of the University's mission to contribute to the exciting range of initiatives in the field of language planning and bilingual /multilingual development both in Wales and elsewhere.
