Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology

This cross-disciplinary programme takes an innovative approach to the teaching of hard science subjects by taking cultural heritage as its context. You will develop a holistic understanding of state-of-the-art science and engineering through research in arts, heritage and archaeology, focusing on a range of competitive skills making you employable in industry, heritage or academia.

Entry requirements

The normal minimum qualifications are an upper 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. A 2nd acceptable qualification is a degree of lower than upper 2nd Class standard, or an equivalent overseas qualification, in a subject appropriate to the programme, plus significant experience in the field. The latter implies considerable experience as a professional. For applicants without a 1st degree or full professional membership, but with relevant and substantial work experience in the field, a special qualifying examination may be set.

Course modules

Core Modules: SEAHA in context; SEAHA transferrable skills; SEAHA research methodology; SEAHA field project.

Assessment methods

The programme is delivered through lectures, seminars, problem-solving classes, tutorials, laboratory and field-work and independent project work. It includes a significant research component with intensively linked projects, field-based research and a dissertation. Students present their research through a poster, a scientific paper, and a field-work report.
