Geography and archaeology are natural partners and this Archaeology and Geography (Hons) degree at the University of Nottingham is ideal for anyone wanting to develop a broad understanding of the world around them with a unique long-term perspective. Bridging the humanities and the sciences, the BA in Archaeology and Geography allows you to explore the development of human societies from the origins of early humans to the present day, and to explain the relationship between people, landscape and the changing environment.
The flexible structure of the degree and the wide choice of topics available will enable you either to specialise or maintain a breadth of interests as you progress through the course.
Your technical training will include cartography, statistical techniques and computing.
You will receive a balanced training in relevant aspects of physical, human, regional and technical geography.
These modules provide a core understanding of archaeological method, environmental archaeology, ancient technologies, and the history of archaeological thought and research methods.
The BA in Archaeology and Geography has been designed to provide extensive general training in both archaeology and geography.
You will get acquainted with a full range of theoretical, analytical and field methods in both disciplines, and you will carry out your own independent work into an area of your own interest.
You will gain broad knowledge of human culture from the Palaeolithic to the present day, and of key themes and issues in human and physical geography and the study of climate and the environment.
You will have advanced understanding of a range of analytical techniques and approaches, providing an excellent foundation for further specialist training or a career.
