This BA Archaeology and History with Placement and Study Abroad combined degree offers insights into the richness and variety of past human experience, covering a wide range of subjects and approaches.
You will gain knowledge of a range of chronological periods, as well as develop your ability to analyse change over time and to compare cross-cultural and abstract concepts. This flexible course enables you to tailor your degree to your interests and apply what you learn in the real world.
The Department of Archaeology is the eight-highest ranking UK university for Archaeology and ranked 31st in the world (QS World Rankings by Subject, 2018). At the University of Reading, our expertise in Archaeology starts with the earliest humans and spans up until the medieval period. We focus mainly on British, European and Near Eastern Archaeology, but also explore other regions across the world. You will learn about Burial Archaeology, Material Culture, Bioarchaeology (including human remains), Forensics, Past Environments (including Geoarchaeology), Museums and Gender Archaeology. Benefit from our dedicated Archaeology Building and specialist equipment, and learn in purpose-built laboratories.
Our expertise in history covers a wide range of world regions – Europe and Africa to America, South Asia and the Middle East. Module choices cover several historical periods: these include the Crusades, the 1960s, slavery in America, the Tudor monarchy, Cold War Berlin and medieval magic. In your first year, core modules will explore people, politics, and revolution. You will find out how people struggled for power in past societies, and learn about the culture and concepts those societies developed.
We have an outstanding track record for student satisfaction, with 90-100% of students in the Department of Archaeology satisfied with the quality of their course in every National Student Survey between 2010 and 2018, and 90% of students in the Department of History satisfied with the teaching on their course in the 2017 National Student Survey.
