Course summary

For students interested in the classical world this degree provides a focus on the art and material culture of Greece and Rome. The programme includes a basic grounding in at least one classical language, fundamental aspects of archaeology, and field visits to develop a first-hand acquaintance with sites, museums and objects.

Your learning

You will be taught using a mixture of lectures, seminars and practical sessions, either field or laboratory-based. Full use is made of our extensive teaching and reference collections and close connections to the national museums and collections of London.

Assessment

Coursework, typically 1,500-2,500-word essays, is used to assess most modules. Most compulsory modulses and some optional modules involve an examination element too. The completion of 70 days' fieldwork is a requirement for all archaeology students. This includes a four-week study tour for Classical Archaeology students.

Careers

Throughout the degree, which includes 70 days of fieldwork, students develop the ability to work collaboratively and effectively within teams as well as working independently in order to execute research. Students develop strong research and analytical skills and an appreciation of the importance of recovering primary data through practical experience.

Students learn to communicate effectively verbally, visually and in writing to diverse audiences and develop a sensitivity to different cultures. Our graduates go on to work in a diverse range of fields from archaeology (fieldwork, research and academia), heritage, museums, the UK civil service and police, law, engineering, business - the possibilities are extremely wide and varied.
