Geographical Information Science and Archaeology

This programme offers you the chance to develop a detailed understanding of the application of geographical information science (GIS) and related technologies within the field of archaeology. The programme retains a distinctive Scottish flavour, and students will benefit from the guidance of internationally recognised staff. The programme combines the pedigree of Edinburgh's GIS expertise with a long-established reputation in archaeological teaching and research. You will gain a broad understanding of the use of GIS in archaeological surveying, recording and research and will be equipped with the analytical and communication skills necessary to work in this vibrant area. Demand for the application of GIS within archaeology is growing at an unprecedented rate, including searching for new archaeological sites, determining the societal context of existing sites and examining the interplay between successive occupations of a site. The proven ability of our GIS graduates in employment means our programme is held in high regard by a wide range of employers.
