Archaeologists give us the chance to see how people lived and how they interacted with their communities and societies. If opening a window to the past under the direction of some of Australia's most respected archaeologists appeals to you, then get ready to discover our Bachelor of Arts (Archaeology).

There are plenty of opportunities to get hands-on with this major, with practical archaeological training, including field methods and laboratory analysis.

Our acclaimed lecturers have a breadth of knowledge in the field to enrich your learning - Professor Bryce Barker can claim to have uncovered the oldest rock art to have been discovered in Australia.
