Using lecture capture technology, lectures to full time Archaeology students are recorded and made available for viewing via the web. Tutorials for those studying by flexible learning are held by audio or video conferencing in the evenings. Students can either attend face to face with the tutor in Aberdeen or be connected from home. Those taking the flexible Archaeology courses are welcome to attend lectures and excursions alongside full time students. For those unable to attend excursions or practical sessions with full time students, alternative exercises are provided.
In Scotland, we have some of the best pre-historic sites of their type to be found in the world. Whether it be the flint scatters of the first hunter gatherers, chambered cairns, standing stones and stone circles, Brochs, Clearance Villages or traces of our industrial past, the evidence of the past never ceases to provoke question and discussion. This programme offers a wide range of courses including ones on the archaeology of Prehistoric Scotland, the Picts, Underwater Archaeology, Industrial Archaeology, the Prehistory of Orkney and many others
The Scottish Studies programme enables you to study a wide range of subjects including courses on: Family History, Local History, Landscape and Natural Environment, the Scots Language, the Highland Clearances, Myths and legends, Vikings and Reading Scottish Manuscripts to name but a few.
The Scottish Archaeology and Scottish Studies programmes are taught by means of video conferenced tutorials which can be taken either face-to-face with the tutor in Aberdeen, or for those not in easy travelling distance, at home (broadband connection and telephone land line required) or at one of our many study centres. Each course is supported by a course workbook, and further material is put on the course web sites. Tutorials are fortnightly, and are held in the evenings or on Saturday mornings.
The 2013-14 prospectus will be available soon.
