Archaeology and Modern Languages & Cultures

The University of Sheffield

UCAS Course code VR50

Overview

Studying languages alongside archaeology gives you a unique insight into the historical and cultural development of countries and societies.

On this flexible dual degree you'll have the option to study archaeology alongside either one or two of the 11 different languages we have on offer: Catalan, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Luxembourgish, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

In your first year, you can take any language from beginner's level, and you can take French, German, Polish, Russian or Spanish post-A Level (or equivalent).

You'll develop your communication skills in your chosen language or languages to a high level. Optional modules include linguistics, literature, society and politics, history, philosophy and film studies.

As part of your archaeology degree, you'll carry out a range of modules that will deepen your understanding of the past through the study of the material record. You'll have the opportunity to encounter aspects of world archaeology and explore the richness, difference and diversity of humanity from our earliest beginnings to modernity.

You'll spend your third year abroad, usually as a student at a university, as a language assistant in a school, or on an approved work placement. We also have a number of places on summer courses and you'll have the opportunity to work on archaeological excavations.

Studying or working in another country will greatly enhance your transferable as well as language skills, making you even more attractive to employers.

Our graduates work in archaeology, in commercial units, national and local government, the charitable sector and university departments. Some choose to study for a postgraduate degree. Others have gone into journalism, teaching, the police, healthcare and the media.
