Course summary

**Course Overview**- Interested in the study of humans: how we evolved, why we live in different sorts of societies globally, and how we interact with one another and the environment? Archaeology and Anthropology is the course for you.- Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.- This course allows you to develop a knowledge and understanding of the related disciplines of archaeology and anthropology. You’ll acquire the analytical and interpretive techniques to study both biological and cultural anthropology.- The course is divided equally between modules in archaeology and in anthropology. You’ll complete six compulsory modules, introducing you to key elements of each discipline. In further years you’ll take four compulsory modules, two each in archaeology and anthropology, and two further optional modules.**Why study with us**- Study archaeological remains from various time periods. Understand the nature and origins of archaeological evidence, and how it’s acquired and interpreted.- Combine cultural and biological anthropology and archaeology, studying human cultures from the present day back to the evolutionary origins of humanity.- State-of-the-art laboratory facilities, teaching collections and fieldwork funding ensure that your degree is research-informed, practical and international in outlook.**Further Information**- You’ll undertake a four-week placement in the summer during the first years of the course. Typically, this will be on a teaching excavation run by University of Central Lancashire staff in collaboration with staff from a professional archaeological organisation or museum.- All food and accommodation costs are covered during these placements. You can also organise your own placements either in the field or with a museum.- These external placements are carefully monitored to ensure that both the learning outcomes and employment opportunities are parallel to the ones offered through the course team.- Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to apply for the Undergraduate Research Internship Scheme run by the University. Typically a number of these summer paid placements are hosted by archaeology and anthropology every year.
