About Archaeology at University College Cork

Overview

This course is for non-archaeology graduates who have a degree and would like to transfer their studies to the discipline of archaeology. The course is designed for those who have an active interest in archaeology and want to undertake a full-time course of study. It is also aimed at those currently employed in some branch of archaeology, who wish to obtain an academic qualification in the subject. The Diploma is also designed for those who require a conversion course to apply for postgraduate studies in archaeology in UCC, such as the one-year MA course or the MPhil/PhD research degree.

Course Details

This is a full-time course over one academic year during which you will take modules in archaeology to the equivalent of 60 credits. The course is made up of modules from the second and third year courses in the undergraduate BA degree. You are required to take core modules to a value of 20 credits. You will chose the remaining 40 credits in consultation with the course coordinator, taking into account timetable constraints and suitability of course combinations. Students with little previous knowledge of archaeology may also audit all or part of the first year archaeology course.
