Archaeology and Geography with Professional Experience

In brief: Our Geography courses are ranked 27th in the UK and top 3 in the North West according to the Guardian University league tables 2018. Two-semester integrated work placement in the second year. Many field trip opportunities. Work/industrial placement opportunity. International students can apply. This course will enable you to explore the relationship between the wider landscape and environment, and the human societies that inhabited them. You will gain real-world employment experience and knowledge of current professional practice from a two-semester-long placement in your second year. Modules on current professional practice, British archaeology, the environment, GIS and heritage management will provide you with a broad archaeological and geographical foundation. Field work is a key element of this course, and you may have the opportunity to go on day trips to the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales, Sheffield and Liverpool, as well as on residential field courses across the UK. You will only pay a modest non-refundable deposit for such visits, which are otherwise 100% subsidised by the university. This course includes a two-semester-long work placement module that allows you to work with real-world external heritage companies and agencies. You will arrange the placement with our support. Specific modules where you will work directly with external professionals are ‘Heritage Protection and Management’ in the second year and the ‘GIS’ and ‘Archaeology and the Public’ modules in the third year.
