UCD School of Archaeology assumes that students have no prior knowledge of the subject, and therefore teaches a course that starts with basics and ends with specialisms.
Students are introduced to the archaeology of Ireland and the world (from earliest prehistory), and to archaeological methods including excavation and scientific methods.
Second & Third Year
Modules are organised around a number of key pathways, specifically in Archaeological Science, Prehistoric Archaeology, Medieval Archaeology, and Experiential and Experimental Archaeology.
Students will attend lectures, tutorials, practical classes and undertake independent study. They may also work on excavations and in the laboratory, and within the School’s experimental archaeology space on campus.
Assessment is through a combination of end-of-semester written examinations, continuous assessment and independent learning. In your final year you may also undertake a research project.
