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

  • Objectives
    The first year of the BA introduces you to the history and methods of archaeology, and how such methods are used to reconstruct past lifestyles and human social development. In Year 2, approaches to interpretation of different types of archaeological and scientific data are explored, and you choose specialised modules from the prehistoric and historic periods. Practical aspects involve participation in the Field School, artefact analysis and laboratory sessions.
  • 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.
