From a foundation in landscape theory, the Landscape Archaeology programme provides a critical understanding of landscapes, and their components, character and relevance to contemporary society. There is a strong emphasis on field-based learning in a wide diversity of archaeological landscapes around Ireland. Field Survey workshops form part of the programme, teaching the basics in manual surveying, total station survey and geophysical surveys, as well as structure-from-motion (SfM) photogrammetry and GNSS (GPS) survey techniques.
Career OpportunitiesGraduates at National University of Ireland, Galway are employed in many areas of the profession, while others choose to continue their studies through the medium of doctoral research. Graduates seeking employment after the completion of the course commonly find work in archaeological consultancies, in the State sector and in local authorities and are usually engaged in landscape assessment and surveys, pre-development impact assessments, and excavations.
