Our BA Archaeology and Heritage brings together a depth of knowledge about the human past with a practical understanding of why that knowledge is important for society today. You'll explore different interpretations of heritage and gain practical skills in communicating our past to the public. You'll delve into questions tackling the conflict around heritage and explore how we can protect it for the future. Our department is renowned for being friendly and welcoming, meaning you'll get to know your lecturers, and they'll get to know you. You'll have endless opportunities to get involved, from joining the Archaeology Society to working abroad on a research project. Our degrees prepare you for a vast range of careers. The unique combination of humanities and sciences at York means you'll be competent in dealing with data as well as able to produce high-quality essays and reports - a combination not often found in graduates today. If you're interested in going into the heritage sector, you'll be able to choose modules which provide you with a solid grounding in heritage studies alongside the practical skills needed to kick start your career. York is a real centre for the heritage industry, and you'll have the option to create links with museums and heritage organisations through optional volunteering, internships and placements.
