BA Archaeology and Ancient Civilisations
This BA degree provides undergraduate students with a strongly archaeological perspective on Classical civilisation and/or ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt and South Asia. The programme integrates a broad archaeological training comprising a full curriculum of archaeological theory and practice (including fieldwork and practical skills) with a specialization in the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean and/or Near East.
It also allows students with an interest in Classics to take a number of optional modules taught by the Department of Classics and Ancient History, including language modules, and gives them considerable flexibility in their preference of geographic region and chronological period of specialisation.
If you are a student who is thinking seriously about a Joint Honours degree in Archaeology and Ancient History but who also wishes to study the practical elements of archaeology that are not available to Joint Honours students, such as field work and artefacts, then this is the right option for you.
The course code is VQ48.
