This degree will provide you with a strong foundation in the more advanced theory and methods as well as period-based and thematic specialisms. You may also acquire more practical skills in areas of archaeological science, as well as those necessary for independent research in archaeology.
You will have the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of the potential and limitations of different forms of archaeological evidence. You will deepen your understanding of the themes and periods of the past and engage more critically with current archaeological issues and debates. Teaching will combine seminars, presentations and projects and well as lectures, encouraging you to play an active role in your learning and developing your skills for independent study. You will be assessed through various forms of coursework and a dissertation. During your time here, you will have access to more one-to-one contact with staff than you would have had at undergraduate level and you are encouraged to actively participate in and contribute to our vibrant graduate community.
This Masters degree develops your research and analytical skills, providing you with an excellent foundation for further study or career progression. There is also the option of doing an extended dissertation, giving you more research experience if you are considering going on to undertake PhD research.
We have internationally recognised strengths in research and teaching in all fields of archaeology, with research strengths in prehistory, Classical/Roman studies, medieval as well as historical archaeology, and the theory and practice of landscape archaeology.
What's the difference?
You will do four modules on both the Masters (MA) and Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) courses. If you go on to complete a dissertation you will get a Master's Degree. Alternatively you can just complete the four modules in order to get a PGDip.
