Archaeology

On this course you choose roughly half the modules. And the list of options is extensive. With our help, you can design a degree that reflects your interests and your ambitions. You're free to specialise in a particular area if you want to, or develop a broader understanding of the discipline. You choose whether to go on a fieldwork placement over the summer or complete a dissertation. We believe archaeology is crucial to understanding the present: the relationship between humans and the environment, the problems we face, and their potential solutions. Our research-led teaching reflects this. If you're looking for a masters that understands how archaeologists engage with contemporary society, this is it. You can expect a balanced timetable of lectures, seminars and practicals. You'll have access to specialist labs and world-class reference collections. Many of our masters courses include a fieldwork or project-based component. We integrate humanities and science-based approaches to nurture a deeper understanding. You'll have the opportunity to explore different viewpoints and make up your own mind about their strengths and weaknesses. We'll help you to develop your critical thinking as well as your practical skills. What we ask of you, as a member of our lively academic community, is that you challenge, question, and explore. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
