O que eu aprenderei?

Archaeology is an exciting subject that studies past human societies through the material remains they left behind, investigating important developments in the human story over a long period of time.

The greater part of the human story is beyond the range of traditional historical methods and can only be studied using archaeological approaches to the ancient past.

Archaeologists regularly collaborate with scientists working in such disciplines as botany and physics, analysing environmental remains and dating ancient objects.

Archaeology is a professional discipline, with numerous employment opportunities in Ireland and abroad.

Modules

You can take Archaeology as one of four subjects in the First Arts course. You will be provided with a general introduction to the discipline of Archaeology in Year 1 so you will not need to have any particular background in this subject. You will also be introduced to the Archaeology of Ireland, spanning 10 millennia from the earliest human settlement of the island to the early modern era.

Years 3 and 4 provide foundation and advanced training in Irish and European Archaeology, as well as a range of skills-orientated courses that are necessary for career development.

Overall, the BA degree in Archaeology seeks to balance archaeological theory and culture history courses with those dealing with fieldwork and scientific approaches in the past.

Skills and Careers Information

As well as being an exciting and interesting subject, Archaeology is a professional career qualification, with employment opportunities in Ireland and abroad. Archaeologists work in a wide range of areas and specialisms, including:
