Course summary

Create a bespoke degree that reflects your unique interests and ambitions through one of our two pathways: Cross-discipline or Classical Mediterranean.

Course description

The Cross-discipline pathway provides a route into advanced study of archaeology for students with generalist interests. You’ll create a bespoke course within a clear structure that allows you to engage your specific interests in period, region or approach while building on a strong foundation of understanding archaeology as a discipline. You’ll choose between completing a research dissertation or developing employability through a work placement.

The Classical Mediterranean pathway reflects one of our departmental core strengths, the archaeology of the Classical and Mediterranean world. You’ll study the Classical Mediterranean from a range of archaeological perspectives – socio-cultural, landscape, materials, bioarchaeological – within a directed structure of core modules and a research dissertation. The additional options of existing Ancient History modules and Latin will allow you to further customise your degree. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.

This course is excellent preparation for a PhD. You’ll also develop the professional and transferable skills you need to progress to a career in this field.

MA students

You'll also go on a work placement and complete a report as part of your placement experience OR choose your own research project and complete a dissertation.

Teaching

You'll be taught through a mix of lectures, tutorials, seminars and field trips.

Assessment

Your assessments will include essays, portfolio work, practical work, exams, a dissertation or a placement report.
