Farewell from the educators
In this video, the team thank you for taking part in the course and suggest ways in which you can continue to learn about maritime archaeology.
Where you choose to go from here will depend on your highest level of qualifications. Some of you will have taken this course out of interest, whereas others will be looking at new career choices. If you are still in secondary education (or only have qualifications usually taken at age 16) then you will need to embark on further study before considering a degree course in this area. Subject areas that you may want to consider include History, Geography and science based subjects.
If you have qualifications taken at 18 years old (A-levels, Highers or the International Baccalaureate in the UK), then you may be eligible to apply for an Undergraduate degree programme. At University of Southampton, Archaeology programmes are part of Humanities. You can find all undergraduate archaeology programme and module information in the linked list below:
- F400 BSc Archaeology (3 years)
- V400 BA Archaeology (3 years)
- VL47 BA Archaeology and Geography (3 years)
- VV41 BA History and Archaeology (3 years)
