The School of History, Archaeology & Religion is a well-resourced centre with a strong reputation for its research and research-led teaching, combining the following disciplines:
The most recent Teaching Quality Assessment resulted in a grade of 'Excellent' and since then the School has regularly undergone thorough audits of its teaching provision. The views of external experts and of our own students are sought, in order to ensure that learning and teaching in the School remain of the highest standard.
We are a community of researchers and teachers, undergraduates and postgraduates, devoted to the study of the past from prehistoric times to contemporary societies. Having all these disciplines in one School brings many advantages to staff and students.
We are able to offer a huge range of taught modules with a wide measure of choice and flexibility within and between disciplines. It is called a School rather than a department because of its size and the breadth of the subject interests available.
We have good relations not only with other departments in the Humanities and Social Sciences, but also with the nearby National Museum Wales. All this is within the exciting and still developing city of Cardiff, which has a fascinating history of its own and an urban, rural and maritime setting full of interest and beauty.
