About

In addition to progressively developing general and specific knowledge and skills in Archaeology, through excavation, fieldwork, overseas fieldtrips, laboratory and practical work, students on the Archaeology with French degree at Queen's University Belfast develop linguistic proficiency in French and analyse Francophone cultures in the broadest sense.

Overview

Archaeology explores a wide range of evidence that documents the human past – from artefacts, monuments and settlements to entire landscapes – and from these interprets how societies have adapted and developed. Modules focus on different periods of World, European and Irish/British archaeology, from human origins to modern times and heritage.

Between Stages 2 and 4, students on this degree programme spend a year abroad in a Francophone country, studying Archaeology at one of QUB's Francophone partner institutions. At present, for Archaeology this is the University of Burgundy at Dijon, in the heart of metropolitan France.

Different French-language entry level options are available on this course, from beginners to students who hold French A-Levels. A wide range of career options are available to our graduates, including careers in commercial archaeology, survey, heritage management and many more, both within and beyond the heritage sector.

As well as the BA degree programme in Archaeology with French , Queen's offers Single Honours degrees in Archaeology (BA) and Archaeology-Palaeoecology (BSc) along with other degree programmes which combine Archaeology (the study of past human activities) with other subjects (Languages, Geography and History). All of those Single Honours and Joint Honours degrees offer a module pathway that is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) and University Archaeology UK (UAUK). 

Career Prospects

Studying for an Archaeology with French degree from Queen's University Belfast will assist students in developing the core skills and employment-related experiences that are valued by employers, professional organisations and academic institutions. 

Graduates from this degree at Queen’s are well regarded by many employers (local, national and international) and over half of all graduate jobs are now open to graduates of any discipline, including Archaeology with French.

Although the majority of our graduates are interested in pursuing careers in archaeology-related areas (town and country planning, environmental impact, Land and Property Services [formerly Ordnance Survey]) significant numbers develop careers in a wide range of other sectors.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • All students on this degree programme normally take five courses per stage (a stage equals one academic year of full-time study), each covering a distinct theme, and one of which will be a double-weighted French-language module. 
  • During their year abroad, students will normally study the equivalent of six QUB Archaeology modules at a Francophone partner institution.
