Studying Archaeology is ideal if you’re fascinated by both the ancient and more recent past and if you want to explore and investigate the material remains of previous societies and cultures.

This course will help you develop into a highly employable graduate. Professional archaeologists are currently in incredibly high demand both regionally and nationwide.
While studying History at BGU, you will explore a range of fascinating topics spanning a number of historical eras, in a variety of local, national and global contexts; from pirates in the early modern Atlantic World to civil rights campaigners in the 1960s. As well as learning about the people in the past, you will investigate how people today engage with history and consider how the past can be brought alive.
