Archaeology and Anthropology (Foundation Year)

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you are interested in the study of human beings; how we evolved, why we live in different sorts of societies around the world, and how we interact with one another and the environment, then this is the course is for you. You’ll be able to combine cultural and biological anthropology and archaeology to study human cultures from the present day back to the evolutionary origins of humanity. The subjects are supported by state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, teaching collections and generous fieldwork funding to ensure that teaching on the degree is research informed, practical and genuinely international in outlook. Staff and students have been involved in fieldwork research and teaching all over the UK, and in Albania, France, Guatemala, India, Ireland, Israel, Kenya, Libya, Mauritius, Poland, Spain, Turkey and the United States. UCLan archaeology graduates work for a number of different contracting archaeological organisations. Others are employed in museums or are doing research degrees at a variety of UK universities. Some have used the transferable skills they gained on their degree to enter graduate level employment in other areas of work or to undergo further training to work in careers such as teaching. Nationally a high proportion of anthropology graduates work in the public and not-for-profit sectors, all branches of the Civil Service, local government, charities, central government bodies, universities, international organisations, museums and voluntary organisations. Anthropology graduates also pursue roles in advertising, sales and marketing, positions in museums, conservation, and heritage management and careers related to health and social work.
