Sheffield is one of the best places in the UK for archaeology. Its rich industrial heritage is well documented. And one third of the city is inside the Peak District National Park, 555 square miles of ancient landscape, complete with medieval villages, Bronze Age and Neolithic monuments and a network of caves decorated by ice age hunters. This course explores the development of humanity from hominids to modernity. You will spend roughly half your time in our School of Languages and Cultures, studying either French, German, Russian or Spanish. You will spend your third year abroad, studying archaeology at a leading university, or on an approved work placement. Sheffield is ranked 13th in the world for archaeology in the QS World University Rankings 2016. You’ll get training in techniques such as survey and excavation. And there are plenty of opportunities for fieldwork, here and overseas. Graduates go on to work in commercial archaeology units, heritage, culture and the environmental sector. Employers include English Heritage, Channel 4, the British Museum and the House of Commons.
