This programme allows you to specialise, but also encourages you to branch out into related disciplines and to consider interdisciplinary approaches.
You will choose two core Archaeology modules, at least one in Classical Archaeology. You will also study a third core module in: Research and Scholarship in Classics and Ancient History.
You will also choose three optional modules, at least two of which should relate to Classical Archaeology. Options available in Archaeology typically include:
- Archaeological Theory, Method and Interpretation
- Byzantine Archaeology and Material Culture
- Funerary Archaeology
- Material Culture
For more information, see our Archaeology postgraduate modules.
Additional options may be available in Classics and Ancient History, such as Numismatics for Research and in Museums.
Modules are typically assessed by written assignment, although the Research and Scholarship module also requires a presentation.
In addition to your taught modules, you will conduct a piece of independent research with the support of a supervisor, culminating in a 15,000-word dissertation.
Please note that the optional module information listed on the website for this programme is intended to be indicative, and the availability of optional modules may vary from year to year. Where a module is no longer available we will let you know as soon as we can and help you to make other choices.
