Archaeology is available to undergraduate students through several degree programs. Students can undertake a major in archaeology as part of an ordinary (three year) degree through a Bachelor of Arts and Science or a Bachelor of Applied Geographical Information Systems. A minor in archaeology can be taken as part of a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Arts - Enhanced Program for High Achievers.
A more specialised, professionally-oriented program is available through the Bachelor of Archaeology, which is run in conjunction with Adelaide University's Department of Anthropology, Department of Classics, Archaeology and Ancient History and Discipline of Anatomy and Pathology. Flinders is one of only three universities in Australia to offer a specialised Bachelor of Archaeology degree.
In addition, archaeology links with many other degrees to provide students with a range of career options. The Bachelor of Archaeology may be combined with a range of Science degrees offered at Flinders University. For additional information about these combined degrees see Bachelor of Archaeology and Science Degrees
Undergraduate students are eligible to apply to study archaeology abroad on a Flinders Exchange program for either 1 or 2 semesters. Flinders Archaeology students have been on exchanges to the University of New Mexico (USA), the University of Leicester (UK), University College London and Simon Fraser University (Canada). Other exchange partners with archaeology programs include Northern Arizona University (USA), the University of Valencia (Spain), East Carolina University, the University of Miami and more. For more information contact the International Centre.
Many students look to gain extra experience in archaeology by volunteering on excavations, in the lab, or on field projects. In the third year of their degree students can gain credit for this work via the topic ARCH3313: Archaeology in the Field. Simply obtain a log book now and start recording all your volunteer work - it also makes a great record of your work experience skills when you apply for a job.
