This Archaeology BA Honours degree focuses on developing your key practical skills. You’ll form a thorough knowledge of archaeology topics – from prehistory to the recent past – and graduate prepared for a varied career in the heritage sector and beyond.

Through hands-on learning experiences, you will investigate the social, historical and cultural contexts in which past societies developed, drawing on evidence from a range of disciplines.

You’ll explore the North East, a region that’s steeped in history while on field trips, and have opportunities to go abroad.

The information below is intended to provide an example of what you will study.

Most degrees are divided into stages. Each stage lasts for one academic year, and you’ll complete modules totalling 120 credits by the end of each stage.

Our teaching is informed by research. Course content may change periodically to reflect developments in the discipline, the requirements of external bodies and partners, and student feedback.

You will learn from a dynamic range of methods and activities, including:

practical activities
site visits
fieldwork training
independent study
These activities take place in the classroom, the library, the field, the museum and the laboratory.
