This programme is studied fully online.
The Certificate in Archaeology combines elements of the humanities, social sciences and sciences. Courses will cover subjects such as the origins of modern humans, the prehistory of Britain, lifeways and culture changes in the northern world as well as Scottish archaeology. What is more, through the university’s online platform, the Certificate offers flexibility for students who have other day-time commitments or who live away from Aberdeen.
In seeking to understand how ancient people lived their lives, structured their world, and engaged with their environment, archaeologists ask the big questions that can provide us with the tools to tackle modern day issues such the effects of climate change, designing the ‘perfect’ diet, or investigating the spread of epidemics.
You will enjoy a special, warm welcome at the University of Aberdeen and benefit from excellent teaching, the international impact of our research, and a global experience as part of our friendly and vibrant international community. More information about archaeology at Aberdeen can be found through the Department of Archaeology website.
