The BA Archaeology and Anthropology degree follows the four field approach to Anthropology, whereby anthropology comprises archaeology, social anthropology, biological anthropology and anthropological linguistics. This program explores how humans, and our ancestors, engaged with their world, both physical and social, and combines aspects of both the humanities and the sciences. By taking the BA Archaeology and Anthropology degree, you will gain insights into human lives, both contemporary and from the past, and explore the differences between them and our own 21st-century Western world. A special feature of this program is that all the disciplines within the four fields of Anthropology: archaeology, social and biological anthropology, together with anthropological linguistics are closely integrated over the three years, allowing you to explore global human diversity in time and space, in a truly interdisciplinary fashion. Studying Archaeology and Anthropology means you be able to attend a weeklong field school at the end of your first year, and then participate in a minimum of three weeks of fieldwork as part of an active research project. This is usually undertaken during the summer vacation of your first or second year of study, and may be in the UK or overseas. Opportunities for undertaking further fieldwork, including participation in overseas research projects, are also available.
