Postgraduate Students


The programme equips you to go on to advanced study, and also provides a solid foundation for a career.

In addition to academic development, you will be able to acquire analytical and teamworking skills, which can be applied in a variety of contexts.

Examples of career paths available to archaeology graduates (although some may require additional training) include: higher education, heritage management and agencies, commercial archaeology, environmental assessment, schools (if combined with another subject), tourism/travel.

An archaeology degree does not, of course, restrict you to a career in archaeology. You may develop your own career pathway in unusual ways or branch into related fields, while maintaining a lifelong interest and involvement in archaeological work and research.
