Course summary

The MSci Archaeology is a four-year first degree in Archaeology suitable for those who wish to study archaeology in greater depth than a three-year BSc. Archaeology studies the human past through its material remains such as buildings, monuments, artefacts, biological remains, written sources and the landscape. The MSci Archaeology degree offers a unique perspective on the human past in a broad geographic and temporal context, providing you with an understanding of how the human species evolved, how human societies came into being, and how and why they changed over time. The course enables you to discover different periods and different peoples, expanding your knowledge of humans from their first appearance some two million years ago up to the present day.You will learn about the many methods we use to find, excavate and investigate archaeological sites and materials. This involves a wide range of techniques and critical thinking skills, combining aspects of both sciences and arts. Within the Msci Archaeology degree there is the option to further focus your study on a particular specialism via well defined curriculum pathways, typically including Ancient Civilization, Maritime Archaeology, Geomatics and Survey, Prehistory, and Osteoarchaeology.
