BSc in Applied Archaeology
If you have an interest in how people lived in the past, enjoy working outdoors and would like to work in a challenging and rewarding field, this is the ideal course for you.
This course covers in detail the past 10,000 years of human activity in Ireland, ranging from the nomadic hunter-gatherers of the Mesolithic Era through to the industrial archaeology of the 18th and 19th centuries within a wider European context.
It includes a strong practical element and, given the sites of archaeological interest in the West of Ireland, Sligo is an ideal location for this course. It is exciting and innovative and offers outdoor fieldwork with sound classroom and laboratory-based study.
