Archaeological, Anthropological & Forensic Sciences BSc (Hons)

Blending laboratory and field science within a meticulous academic framework, this dual focus degree bridges the disciplines of science and humanities; delivering a course that will prepare you for a wide range of fascinating career opportunities in archaeology, forensics and other applied sciences.

You'll receive expert-led theoretical and practical training that covers everything from crime scene science to toxicology, from chemistry to molecular biology, and in addition to focusing on forensic science and archaeology; you’ll also delve into the subjects of anthropology, and genocide investigation. What’s more, in years two and three/four, you can select some of the units you study based on your own personal interests and career ambitions.

To improve your employability prospects once you graduate, the course includes a five or 30-week period in placement (depending on the length of the degree you choose). Not only will this reinforce what you’ve leant in our state-of-the-art labs and facilities, but you could also build an invaluable network of professional contacts, and secure real world work experience that will critically enhance your CV. To add to your professional portfolio, this degree is recognised by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences.
