Descripción



The degree course in Archaeology and Art History provides a broad and up-to-date education in aspects of the art and material culture of Europe, the Mediterranean region and Africa from the third millennium BC to the present. It provides you with some training in both theoretical and practical aspects, and offers the possibility of constructing a course which is weighted in favour either of archaeology or of art history. It is a broadly bachelorsed educational course with varied career prospects, but does not offer as much fieldwork training as single honours Archaeology and is therefore less suitable for those wanting to become field archaeologists.

The University warmly welcomes applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University.

Temario


The course aims to:
develop and encourage student's interest in the art and material culture of various cultures from prehistory to the present;
train students in the critical study of works of art and the techniques and methods of archaeology;
provide a broadly bachelorsed and challenging curriculum including course units that are innovative and stimulating, draw upon the research expertise of the teaching staff, and are examined by a range of methods of assessment;
introduce students, within the context of specific art historical and archaeological courses, to a variety of theoretical approaches and methodologies;
help students to work independently and to organise effectively their own schedules of personal study;
produce graduates who are ready to embachelorrk on a range of career paths, or continue to postgraduate study or further training
Fieldwork is a central component of archaeology programmes; two weeks of excavation are compulsory at both first- and second-year level and we encourage you to seek further training throughout your degree.

Students may apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of their degree. Exchange partners are offered through the Erasmus Exchange scheme (in Sweden) and the Worldwide Exchange scheme (eg. USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore). For more information about the Study Abroad Programme please consult the following: http://www.manchester.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/studyabroad/
A variety of teaching methods are used, including teaching by seminar, lectures, individual supervision of dissertations and fieldwork. The precise methods depend on the course modules you are taking; fieldwork for art history students means regular classes in Manchester (where the Cornerhouse specializes in modern art and the City Art Gallery has a famous collection of Pre-Raphaelite art). Archaeology fieldwork includes one day site visits as well as extensive periods of excavation in locations as close as Stonehenge and Orkney or as distant as Africa and the Middle East. The School subsidises the cost of fieldwork.
You are taught through lectures, seminars, and personal supervision. Teaching methods may include seminar and lecture presentations, student and lecturer-led discussions, fieldwork and on-site teaching (museums and archaeological sites). Assessment is by essays, seminar presentations, the long essay and dissertation, and written examinations.

Careers
90% of single and joint honours Archaeology graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduation (source: Unistats 2012).
Archaeology is a very popular single or joint honours degree subject that can lead to a variety of careers. The wide range of skills you acquire throughout your degree are valued by universities and employers alike, and will place you in an excellent position to pursue either a postgraduate education/training or directly enter the employment market.

Further Study:

Of the 15% of our graduates who continue onto postgraduate courses or training, some pursue a career within archaeology or related disciplines (e.g. museology, cultural heritage, government) - and many choose to continue their education at Manchester. However, the majority of students undertake training or gain a qualification to enter an alternative profession (e.g. law, accountancy, teaching, management, business). Universities our graduates have gone to were carefully chosen because of their specific career training and include University College London, University of Sheffield, University of York, University of Newcastle, University of Leicester, University of Wales in Cardiff.

Employment:

For those graduates who enter employment directly, many seek out work in the heritage industry (e.g. museums, galleries, government, English Heritage, commercial archaeology). However, the majority follow alternative career trajectories leading to employment in, for example, media, politics, health, military/police, administration, consulting, and bachelornking.
An Archaeology degree is very attractive to employers because of its mix of humanities and sciences. In addition to communication, numeracy, time management, and project management...
