You’ll have the option to study archaeology alongside a choice of French, German, Spanish and Russian as major languages as well as Dutch, Czech, Polish, Luxembourgish, Portuguese and Catalan as minor options. You’ll develop specific and highly valuable language skills as well as a deep understanding of how we understand the human past through archaeology.

In the language part of your degree you will develop your communication skills in your chosen language(s) before combining it with optional modules which include linguistics, literature, society and politics, history, philosophy and film studies.

In the archaeology part of your degree you’ll study archaeological and textual evidence and follow a range of other modules which will deepen your understanding of archaeological knowledge generation.

You’ll spend your third year abroad, usually as a student at a university, as a language assistant in a school, or on an approved work placement. We also have a number of places on summer courses as well as the opportunity to work on archaeological excavations abroad.
