Course summary

This programme has been developed for graduates working in a wide range of specialism in archaeology, including finds and environmental analysis, project management, and geophysical survey. The programme has been mapped to the Knowledge Skills and Behaviours required for these roles to complement the day-to-day work in the field.

  • MA in Archaeological Practice (Blended pathway)
  • Delivered in week-long blocks at convenient locations in England
  • Covers the project lifecycle from planning and data collection to reporting and archiving
  • Part of the Archaeological Specialist apprenticeship ST0769 developed with employers and professional bodies
  • Regular progress reviews with Training Advisor, apprentice and employer
  • Funded by the employer's Apprenticeship Levy contributions or by employer contribution (5% of cost)

After completing the four taught modules, the learner will prepare a dissertation examining a case study, site or collection from end to end.

Main assessment methods will be written assignments, presentations, and a dissertation.

Teaching will be based at a venue convenient to the cohort of learners (likely to be in small teaching rooms in an urban centre).

As students of UWTSD, the learners will have full access to the Virtual Learning Environment e-learning tools, electronic and printed resources from the Learning Resource Centre, and student support.

UWTSD's Masters programmes at Lampeter have proved invaluable to many now working in the sector.
