  • Course description
    The MA Bilingual Studies takes full advantage of the rich linguistic experience offered by Wales’ own bilingual context, as well as Trinity College’s long established expertise within this field. Trinity is a part of an extended network of institutions across Europe where bilingualism 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 Bilingual Studies aims to place these exciting national developments in their historical, political, social, and international contexts.

    This is the first degree of its kind in Europe and is a part of the College’s mission to contribute to the exciting range of initiatives in the field of language planning and bilingual development both in Wales and elsewhere.
