Archaeology and Anthropology with Year Abroad

The BA (Hons) Archaeology and Anthropology programme offers a unique perspective on the human present and past in a broad geographic and temporal context, providing you with an understanding of how the human species evolved, how human societies came into being and changed over time, and the underlying reasons for human social and biological diversity today. A special feature of this programme is that all three disciplines Archaeology, Social and Biological Anthropology are closely integrated over the three years, allowing you to explore global human diversity, in time and space, in a truly interdisciplinary fashion. Archaeology and anthropology are interrelated disciplines that, when combined, provide an excellent insight into what it is to be human, both past and present. This programme explores how people engage with their world, through methods and theories such as archaeological prospection and excavation, ethnographic fieldwork, the study of material culture and human remains, analysis of social data, and philosophical ideas. Travel abroad as part of this challenging and exciting BA Archaeology and Anthropology degree. Spend three years on campus learning the practice of archaeology and what we can understand from uncovering ancient human remains. Spend an academic year abroad on placement making friends and discovering the theories and findings on some of the most exotic and exciting sites imaginable.
