Course Summary

Backed by high student satisfaction rates and drawing from our established and well-respected archaeological, anthropological and sociological programmes, this BA gives you a solid foundation in the study of human societies, past and present, across the globe.Alongside specialist theory, you’ll get a comprehensive grounding in the practical elements of archaeology and anthropology through working in our cutting-edge labs and out in the field. In your second year you’ll have the opportunity to specialise and in year three you’ll complete five or 30 weeks on placement to cultivate the experience and contacts you’ll need to secure work after you graduate.Former alumni have gone on to work for diverse range of organisations including English Heritage, Border Archaeology, Hertfordshire County Council, National Trust, Historic Scotland, Museum of London Archaeology Services, Oxford Archaeology and Wessex Archaeology. Job roles undertaken by alumni have been Operations Team Leader to Trainee Archaeologist and Quality Co-ordinator. Because of the practical experience they gain, our archaeology and anthropology students are successful at finding work once they graduate – 90% of our students are working or studying 6 months after graduating and 90% of our final year students are satisfied with the quality of the course.All statistics shown throughout this page are taken from Unistats, Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE), BU institutional data and Ipsos MORI (National Student Survey) unless otherwise stated.
