Archaeology degrees at Irish universities are structured so that during the first year, you will be provided with the critical skills needed to become a sound archaeologist, whilst in years 2 and 3, students can then choose to tailor the course for what interests them, such as delving into specific cultural periods throughout history or examining artefacts and bones.
Fieldwork plays a massive part in any archaeology degree, and you will spend lots of time at excavation sites, museums and areas of historical interest. Placement years are commonplace as you learn directly from experienced archaeologists and professionals.
Archaeology graduates find employment within government agencies, universities, museums, heritage organisations, applied archaeological companies or consultancies. A range of transferable skills allows graduates to pursue careers in business, teaching, journalism, civil services, police, media, marketing agencies and management.
Please note that entry requirements vary for each university.
