Archaeology and Anthropology

The BA Archaeology & Anthropology programme aims to provide you with a rich understanding of the human condition, focusing on behaviours and societies in both the past and the present. A central focus of the degree is the contemporary global challenges associated with population growth and development, climatic change and climate justice, and the need for sustainable living. You will be able to study both past and present perspectives on these issues, and engage with a wide range of material culture, biological evidence, theoretical perspectives, and real world problems. The degree will support you in developing your academic and transferable skills, in preparation for a range of career choices. The Programme explores the human experience from the biological evolution of our earliestancestors, to contemporary development issues in a range of human societies from across the globe. You will have the opportunity to develop professional skills and experiences, through the Archaeology Field School and a range of practical and data-led modules, supported by our excellent teaching collections. The programme’s strengths lie in the combination of two disciplines, and humanities- and sciences-led methodologies, in order to understand the human experience, and the global challenges we all face, from past and present perspectives. You will expand the range, depth and sophistication of your knowledge and skills within the structured progression of the programme through Parts 1, 2 and 3
