Course summary

BSc Archaeological Science with Placement and Study Abroad course is one of the top scientific archaeology courses in the UK.

BSc Archaeological Science differs from our BA Archaeology course as it concentrates much more on the scientific and forensic aspects of archaeology. On this course, you will gain a wide range of skills to assist you in the study of human bones (including osteology and palaeopathology), enabling you to learn more about past societies, diets and diseases. The course also has a strong focus on environmental archaeology and geoarchaeology, through which you will make fascinating discoveries about ancient human societies, as well as the evolution of landscapes and climate change.

Placement year or year abroad

This four-year degree course includes study at a university abroad, and a placement in your third year, giving you the opportunity to develop valuable professional and international experience. You will spend one semester studying abroad and then undertake a half-year professional placement abroad or back in the UK.

Career

Our recent graduates are represented among the staff of major employers such as Oxford Archaeology, Wessex Archaeology, the Museum of London Archaeology and the Natural History Museum. Some of our graduates have progressed into roles in the police force and in teaching at both primary and secondary levels. Each year several graduates pursue further, higher study following graduation.
