Undergraduate study

At York we offer five exciting Archaeology degrees, each of which offer different perspectives and specialisms in the discipline. All courses share a common first year, after which you'll specialise, choosing from a range of modules on your chosen degree.

The Department is based in King’s Manor, a beautiful medieval building in the centre of York. We also have fantastic facilities on the main University campus: world-leading Bioarchaeology facilities; our Palaeohub with state-of-the-art labs; and our outdoor Experimental Archaeology centre.

A degree in archaeology can take you down a variety of career paths, and our archaeology graduates have excellent career prospects both within the discipline and beyond.
