Students of BEES

There is a long association between the various departments and units in what is now the School of Biological Earth and Environmental Sciences (BEES) and the Departments of Archaeology and Geography, who make-up the School of the Human Environment (SHE). Over the years students at all levels of study from both schools have benefited greatly from this interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research. The BA in Geographical and Archaeological Sciences, having a strong biological and earth science focus, provides opportunity to further strengthen these links.
