The MA in Archaeology enables students to study a variety of archaeological periods and cultures, whilst ensuring that the research skills and theoretical awareness necessary for the completion of a substantial piece of research work are developed.

The course can be used either as vocational training or as a foundation from which to commence further research.

You will study in depth periods, themes and methods in the archaeology of the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia within a framework of advanced archaeological theory.

The course provides a flexible programme of study that reflects areas of staff expertise, building on their extensive research programmes.

The University encourages development of independent learning skills, by providing a supportive, structured environment.

You will develop critical and analytical problem solving skills and personal transferable skills to prepare you for careers in non-cognate fields, and high-level subject knowledge and understanding, and skills to enable you to pursue further research or careers in archaeology.
