Why study Archaeological Science?
While commonly considered a humanities discipline, archaeology is increasingly empowered by scientific approaches and ways of thinking which have revolutionised research into globally significant issues such as human evolution and dispersal, the development of civilisation and human-environment relationships. You will study geography, earth science, biology, psychology in combination with core archaeology courses to develop your skills in scientific reasoning and provide you with strong multidisciplinary knowledge as the foundation for a career in this exciting field. UQ has the largest dedicated number of archaeological science teaching and research staff and is a recognised leader in this discipline in Australia.
