    Course Summary

    This program serves as an introduction to archaeology as a discipline. Students will come to learn how archaeologists investigate and interpret how people lived in the distant past, as well as the way archaeologists retrieve and analyse the evidence ancient people have left behind.

    Archaeology combines influences from the hard sciences and from the humanities, and despite its reputation is a very dynamic field of study. New tools and techniques are constantly being developed and applied, and every new discovery has the potential to overturn years or even centuries of thought.

    This is a three-year program for most students.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    This year will largely be given over to completing your dissertation. You will be supported in this by a member of staff. You will also study several optional modules of your choosing.
