Archaeology explores a wide range of evidence that documents the human past - from artefacts, monuments and settlements to entire landscapes - and from these interprets how societies have adapted and developed. Modules focus on different periods of World, European and Irish/British archaeology from human origins to modern times and heritage. Palaeoecology studies environmental evidence to assess the impact of natural events and human activities on landscapes, climate and changing environments. Modules examine themes such as ancient environments, evolution, economic and climate change. The combined disciplines progressively develop general and specific knowledge and skills, through excavation, fieldwork, overseas fieldtrips, laboratory and practical work. As well as the Single Honours BA in Archaeology and BSc in Archaeology-Palaeoecology, Queen's offers several degrees which combine Archaeology (the study of past human activities) and Palaeoecology (the study of past environments) with other subjects (languages, geography and history). The MSci is a new four-year degree, progressing directly to Masters-level study in Level 4.

I loved my time here at Queen’s, it was a really great university. Don’t worry about Belfast, I never had any trouble here and the uni do a lot to make sure that new students feel safe. It’s about as safe as any big city, but there’s loads of good stuff for students to do here. The locals are also really friendly too, so don’t be afraid! The course was also amazing, my tutors were fantastic and informative and always available to help me out, and the library was a great place to study and hang out. Try Belfast!
