Archaeology and German (BA)
4 years (Full-time) / n/a (Part-time) / n/a (Distance / E-Learning)
Archaeology and German BA (Joint Honours) is an ideal degree scheme for those interested in supplementing study of past human communities through material excavations, with the study of a popular European language at higher education. This joint honours degree has a highly flexible modular structure, and will ensure an understanding of both disciplines, as well as the development of a host of transferable skills. A Joint Honours degree is equal in status to a Single Honours degree, although the time spent on each subject is effectively halved.
