About the course
1 year full time/2 years part time
A unique focus on the archaeology of literate societies, with an emphasis on the classical and medieval worlds. The course provides you with experience in European historical archaeology and develops your ability to integrate textual, artefactual and scientific evidence.
This course is excellent preparation for a PhD and a research career.
Some of our courses have an optional vocational track, designed to prepare you for specific types of jobs. Many of our graduates use their expertise in universities, museums, archaeological consultancies, heritage parks and government.
Specialising in something you love doesnt mean narrowing your career options. Many of our students put their transferable skills to good use in law, banking, information technology, local government, teaching, the creative arts, the media and the charity sector.
