Major available at
The major can be studied in fully online mode; therefore students in Blacktown and Canberra can study Archaeology as a teaching area.
This rich major will focus on Ancient Israel and its material remains including landscapes, architecture, artefacts, and people. It will provide you with core instruction on archaeological evidence and theory combined with opportunities for hands-on experience in the field through a real archaeological excavation in Israel.
You will learn about ancient peoples in the Near East from earliest habitation through interactions of the ancient Israelites with the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Canaanites, Philistines, Greeks and finally the Romans. Along the way, you can choose to study related units in history, languages and science depending on your personal interest. You can broaden your experience with an intensive study trip to Rome where you will learn about its past and heritage. Top achieving students can undertake a personalised special research project and progress to honours.
