Undergraduate Studies


MAA regularly hosts practicals for undergraduate students of archaeology and other subjects. These enable students to get their hands on relevant artefacts from the Museum’s collections, gaining essential practical experience alongside their lectures and seminars.

MAA holds a teaching collection of more than 1,500 archaeological objects from the Museum’s reserve collection, known as the Keyser Teaching Collection. Practical sessions at the museum drawing on this rich resource form a core component of many undergraduate courses offered by the Department of Archaeology.

A new single-honours Archaeology degree was launched at the University of Cambridge in 2017. Social Anthropology can be studied as part of the the Human, Social, and Political Sciences Tripos.
