Archaeology

The course aims to provide an 'umbrella' programme to appeal to archaeology students from a range of backgrounds but interested in pursuing specific archaeological subjects under the banner of a broad degree designation.

Entry requirements

Candidates will normally have a 2.1 Honours level degree or equivalent, preferably in Archaeology or a related discipline across the arts, social sciences or physical sciences. Mature students who do not meet the normal entry requirement but who have appropriate professional experience may also be considered.

Course modules

Modules include: Theory and method in research; advanced archaeological approaches; northern worlds; northern cultures and peoples.

Assessment methods

Assessment for each 30-credit taught module is on the basis of one 3000-word essay and one 3000-word project on topics relevant to the course. The nature of the project may vary from course to course and include reports, exercises and oral presentations.
