Arts and Humanities

Whether it is history, literature, history of art or philosophy, the humanities ask questions about what it means to be alive and how we should interpret the world we find ourselves in. These skills of interpretation and weighing up of evidence can be applied to everyday life, particularly in an age when we are bombarded with information – the humanities are all about debate and perspective.

Archaeology

Progression to the Department of Archaeology

Upon completion of 60 or 120 credits it may be possible for students to progress to the Department of Archaeology for undergraduate study.

The following gives an indication of what the department would be looking for:

  • For first year entry: 60 credits from Lifelong Learning with good marks. Students would need to apply via UCAS, by January each year.
  • For direct second year entry: 120 credits from Lifelong Learning with good marks (all of the credits must be from archaeology modules) and two-three weeks digging (offered to Lifelong Learning Archaeology students during April each year). Students wanting direct entry in to the second year at the department should contact Dr Louise Cooke (Undergraduate Admissions Tutor) in the first instance.
  • Please note, it is not possible to progress straight to masters from Lifelong Learning Modules.

For further information about progression to the Department of Archaeology, please contact Dr Louise Cooke, Undergraduate Admissions Tutor (louise.cooke@york.ac.uk).
