Institute of Archaeology


BA and BSc Degrees in Archaeology


Our BA and BSc degrees are designed to provide extensive general training in archaeology: you can expect to learn about a full range of theoretical, analytical and field methods from some of the world's leading archaeological researchers. You will also have the opportunity to follow your interests in particular chronological periods, geographical areas or special fields of study.

As a discipline, archaeology prepares you for a wide range of future careers, both within the world of archaeology or heritage studies, and far beyond. The personal skills, analytical techniques and general ways of thinking are all highly transferable.

BA/BSc Degree Structure

Classes at UCL take the form of lectures and small-group seminars, as well as laboratory sessions. Each degree is structured around a group of Core Courses (which are compulsory for all students enrolled for a particular degree) and each student then takes optional courses, which they choose themselves from a wide range of possibilities.  Use the links below to read more about the structure of the BA and BSc Undergraduate Programmes and the modules available.
