Students at the Department of Archaeology are part of a diverse research community. The Archaeology programme offered by the University of Cambridge includes courses like Archaeology, Assyriology, Biological Anthropology and Egyptology. Its flexibility means you can either specialize from the first year or opt for a broad start before concentrating on up to two subjects from the second year.
The fantastic resources include purpose-built laboratories, dedicated libraries and a well-equipped IT suite. In addition, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and the Fitzwilliam Museum provide access to extensive collections of primary sources of world importance.
Our course offers the theoretical foundation and training in standard methods and specialised techniques required for academic and professional practice.
The intellectual versatility and transferable skills that our students develop – such as the ability to think critically, analyse texts, handle data and work collaboratively – mean they’re widely sought after by employers in many related and unrelated fields. Graduates have gone on to work in the commercial archaeology sector as well as museums, commerce, diplomacy, advertising, media, conservation, health and further academic study among others.
