A new course for 2015 entry.  Degree duration: 4 years full-time; 8 years part-time

Students may wish to pursue the three year BSc (Hons) Archaeological Practice pathway or the four year BSc (Hons) Archaeological Practice pathway, which includes an industry placement year.

Year 1 provides a sound foundation in both the practice and theory of archaeology. This is enhanced in Year 2 by practical and applied skills such as GIS, Geomatics and Remote Sensing.

Students pursuing the four year pathway participate in a year-long industry placement in their third year. On successful completion of the placement year, students gain the additional award of the Diploma in Professional Archaeology.

In the final year, specific topics are explored in greater depth, together with more advanced vocational modules. Students also complete a dissertation, although those on the three year pathway can opt to undertake a month-long work-based placement instead.

The Department of Archaeology at the University of Winchester is a Registered Organisation with the Institute for Archaeologists (IfA). Students can become Affiliates of the IfA. After graduation they can build up field experience to progress to full membership categories.

Students opting for the four year pathway with industry placement may qualify for full membership of the IfA immediately on graduation.
