Queen's University Belfast
The School of Geography, Archaeology and Paleoecology (GAP) was formed in 2005 by the merger of the School of Archaeology and Palaeoecology and the School of Geography.
The new School of 34 academics combines study traditions of past and present environments, in both their cultural and physical dimensions. Given the many problems of future environments in the 21st century, it is a prime requisite that graduates from GAP are well versed in how past and contemporary worlds work and behave, while future postgraduates will have pushed the frontiers of knowledge and understanding in their pursuit of similar goals. All those who have the desire to know about how the world works, and are equally intrigued by how the past can enliven the study and understanding of the future, are welcome to join with us in this challenging venture.
