Teaching takes place at the Parkgate Road campus.
Archaeology is the study of the human past, from the hunter-gatherers of Ice Age Europe to the inhabitants of modern cities. At Chester, our course provides you with an understanding of these past societies and the techniques that we use to study them. The course aims to provide you with a wide range of skills, such as field survey and excavation, critical reading and writing, and scientific analysis; as well as the opportunity to specialise in particular periods or themes.
Geographers at Chester are as likely to be analysing earth surface materials or studying cultural interpretations of landscape, as to be using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to plan a market research campaign or map the carbon footprint of a rural community. All this ensures you will develop the skills needed by a wide range of employers.
For the latest example of curriculum availability on this degree programme please refer to the University of Chester's Website.
For Geography the majority of assessment is through continuous coursework assignments, complemented by some end-of-module examinations. The Department engages in a wide variety of innovative and imaginative coursework assignments, from podcasting, oral presentations and posters to briefing papers, consultancy reports and essays.
For Archaeology assessment is varied: written work in the form of essays, reports and portfolios, oral presentations, and examinations all feature. In all cases our assessment develops and enhances your key employability skills.
