UCD School of Archaeology assumes that students have no prior knowledge of the subject, and it therefore teaches a course that starts with the 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 radiocarbon dating.
Second & Third Year
Modules are arranged around three themes:
Students will attend lectures, tutorials, practical classes and undertake independent study. They may also work on excavations and in the laboratory. Assessment is through a combination of end-of-semester written examinations and continuous assessment. In your final year you may also undertake a research project.
