Course details
Course UCAS code: V40F
Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
This course allows you to explore the eras and regions of archaeology that are of most interest to you, with a foundation base of knowledge gained in year one followed by a diverse range of optional modules. Field work is an important element of this course, and usually involves participation in an approved excavation through the summer vacation. Archaeology as a discipline can take you around the world, and our staff encourage you to join them on excavations in locations such as Britain, Bulgaria, Italy, and South Africa. Furthermore, we have outstanding facilities on campus to further facilitate your learning, including an on-campus museum where you can gain work experience, as well as the Digital Humanities Centre.
During your foundation year you will develop the skills and gain the knowledge required to progress onto degree level study. In the first year of your degree, you’ll be introduced to the discipline of archaeology: understanding the past through the study of its material remains. This is achieved by studying the general principles and methods of how archaeological sites and remains are recovered and interpreted and by seeing how our knowledge of the development of Europe and the Mediterranean, from prehistory until the Middle Ages, is illuminated by archaeology. During years two and three, you will have the opportunity to specialise in the areas of archaeology that are of most interest to you. Optional modules include Rome and the Mediterranean, The Medieval World and Prehistoric Italy.
