Course description

The degree course in Archaeology and Art History provides a broad and up-to-date education in aspects of the art and material culture of Europe, the Mediterranean region and Africa from the third millennium BC to the present. It provides you with some training in both theoretical and practical aspects, and offers the possibility of constructing a course which is weighted in favour either of archaeology or of art history. It is a broadly based educational course with varied career prospects, but does not offer as much fieldwork training as single honours Archaeology and is therefore less suitable for those wanting to become field archaeologists.


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £15,500 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
