Description

Archaeology is the science of investigation. It addresses the 'big questions' about the human past over the huge periods of time for which there are no written records, so that the forensic skills of the archaeologist are to the fore, as well as combining written records with material evidence in the investigation of historical periods.

Course programme

The Bachelor of Arts in Archaeology is a three-year degree which provides a level of training, skill and knowledge that is respected within professional archaeology and which serves students well when applying for postgraduate study, for employment in archaeology and the heritage sector, and for employment outside of the discipline. It offers a huge range of choice which students can tailor to their own interests.

Year one

In the first year of the BA Archaeology degree, students study three subjects: a general introduction to the human past; a more detailed introduction to archaeological skills; and any other subject offered by the university which is timetable-compatible.

Thus, in their first year, BA Archaeology students take the following compulsory modules:

Students must complete 240 credits of modules of which 80 credits consist of core requirements. The remaining 160 credits come from a wide range of period, topic, or technique specific modules and students have a great deal of flexibilty to follow the subjects they are most interested in.

This is due to the fact that some modules have limited numbers of places available, which are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, while others have minimum student numbers required before they will run, to ensure that an appropriate quality of education can be delivered; some modules require students to have already taken particular subjects, and others are core or required on the programme you are taking. Modules may also be limited due to timetable clashes, and although the University works to minimise disruption to choice, we advise you to seek advice from the relevant School on the module choices available.
