Comments about BA Archaeology & Italian - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire

  • Objectives
    The programme offers students an opportunity to combine the study of ancient societies through archaeology with the study of a modern language and culture. The Archaeology element combines practical experience (including participation in the Field School at the Roman town of Silchester) with academic study of the archaeology of the prehistoric and historic periods of Europe. The Italian element aims to equip students with the ability to communicate competently in spoken and written Italian, and to give them a sound knowledge of a range of aspects of Italian culture, history and society.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
