Learning and assessment
Teaching and learning is delivered through a mix of lectures, seminar and field trips.
Assessment varies by module, ranging from essays and presentations to blogs and reflective diaries.
The MA in Archaeology and Identity builds on research undertaken at the University of Bradford, using our wide range of specialist facilities and collections.
Our facilities include one of the largest skeletal collections in the country, dating from the Neolithic to the 19th century, as well as facilities for image analysis, materials investigations, and botanical and faunal analyses.
While the majority of teaching is campus-based, field trips investigate the role of the past in contemporary society.

Archaeology engages the entire human past in all its temporal and spatial dimensions. It is fundamental to our understanding of how we evolved and our communities developed, and how we study, preserve and interpret our past.
At Bradford, our distinctive approach emphasises the integration of the natural and physical sciences, providing excellence in a comprehensive range of archaeological topics, with emphasis on both teaching and research, believing the two activities to be mutually dependent.
