Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Aoife Mc Dermott from Department of Education and Skills to give some advice for people considering this job:
|The most important thing is that you like your subject area! It?s also important to do as well as you can throughout your degree. For example, I applied for PhD scholarship during my final year, so they were looking at my first, second and third year results. Finally, I find that liking people helps a lot.|

This course focuses on the past 10,000 years of human activity in Ireland, ranging from the nomadic hunter-gatherers of the Mesolithic era through to the industrial archaeology of the 18th and 19th centuries, all of which are explored within a wider European context. This course places emphasis on scientific analytical techniques and applied field skills. The programme also offers modules including geophysical survey and zooarchaeology.
It offers many unique modules not found on other courses, including forensic archaeology, geophysical survey, zooarchaeology and many others.
