University of Birmingham
This programme provides a basis both for doctoral study and for career development in archaeology and heritage and cultural environment professions. It comprises a major individual research project, supervised by a specialist in the field of study, and a taught component that develops research and analytical skills. Potential research projects can be on any archaeological subject, as agreed with the supervisor, and there is a wide range of choice for the taught component, enabling students to build their own programme of study.
Good Honours degree in a relevant subject.
Alongside the dissertation, students take 3 taught modules to complement their research topic and their existing skills profile. The modules available include: Theory, method and interpretation in archaeology; landscape archaeology; field survey; GIS and spatial analysis; virtual landscapes; material culture; funerary archaeology; Greek archaeology; complex societies, 1000 BC-AD 1000; empire and identity; conflict archaeology; byzantine archaeology and material culture; world heritage; digital culture.
The principal element of the programme, and of assessment, is the 20,000-word research dissertation on an agreed subject.
