This course has been designed to introduce you to Archaeology as a discipline for the first time. If your first degree was in a different subject, this is an excellent way to convert to Archaeology. If you already have a degree in an aspect of Archaeology and wish to focus on another area, this course is also suitable for you.
This course is taught at a significantly higher level than in an undergraduate degree and it will also provide you with the range of skills necessary to undertake research.
The MA Archaeology can be regarded as an ideal second degree if you wish to pursue the one-year MA and three years by research suggested by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
* The Department offers cutting-edge equipment and facilities for the scientific analyses of ancient inorganic materials
* The University Museum housing archaeological finds is based in the Department
* The course is suitable for students with and without an archaeology background
* The course can form the foundation for a research career
* Archaeology is a thriving department that attracts academic and research staff from around the world
You will acquire a strong foundation in the skills and techniques necessary for effective research by completing a compulsory core module in Research Methods and Methodology.
In addition, you can choose from a range of approved taught Masters modules available within the Archaeology department. Recently offered modules in the department have included:
* History, Principles and Methods (this core module is normally compulsory if you do not have a previous qualification in Archaeology)
* The Roman Balkans
* The Archaeology of Minoan Crete
* Early British Prehistory
Finally, you will undertake a dissertation of approximately 12,000 words on a subject of your choice, which you will be able to define with the support and advice of your dissertation supervisor.
