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.
