This programme gives you unique opportunities to pursue your own interests in an innovative environment, and to build the precise skill-set and knowledge base you need to support both future research and professional aspirations in archaeology and related heritage sectors.
You will study three core modules on archaeological theory and interpretation, landscape archaeology and field survey. In addition, you will choose three optional modules which can include training in spatial analysis, GIS, geophysical survey and visualisation. You can also choose from a wider range of options, which includes subjects as diverse as submerged landscapes, funerary archaeology, ancient cities and landscapes of conflict, and cultural studies ranging from European prehistory to Classical and Byzantine archaeology.
Research training is provided for all postgraduate students, and MA students put this into practice by researching a topic of your own choice for a supervised 15,000-word dissertation.
We charge an annual tuition fee. Fees for the MA Archaeology programme in 2013/14 are as follows:
Home / EU: £5,130 full-time
Overseas: £13,200 full-time
Part-time programme fees are one half of the full-time programme fees.
