The Archaeology BA will enhance your understanding of the diverse societies of the past through the traces they have left in the form of material objects and texts. We will cover periods from the first use of stone tools 3.3 million years ago to the present day.
Practical experience is a key part of the course. You will participate in excavation and learn various fieldwork techniques throughout your degree to equip you with the skills and knowledge to interpret what you unearth.
You will have the chance to study a diverse range of topics during your time here. Our academic staff have particular expertise in Roman archaeology, prehistory, historical archaeology, heritage, archaeological theory and archaeological sciences, as well as all aspects of Classical (Greek and Roman) history.
Our degrees provide transferable skills in communication, presentation, critical analysis and teamwork. This will be integral to your future career, whether in the broad archaeological sector, or in one of the wide range of professions that attract our graduates. It doesn't matter if you have little or no previous experience in archaeological studies; we have designed our courses for maximum flexibility. This allows you to choose how you want to specialise or diversify as your knowledge and understanding develop.
At the end of your first year you can choose to transfer to the Archaeology BSc.
What's the difference?
The Archaeology BA has an emphasis on understanding and gaining experience of the broad heritage sector
The Archaeology BSc has an emphasis on training as a professional archaeologist
