Course summary

About this course

On our humanities-focused maritime archaeology master’s degree you’ll explore the changing relationship people have had with the world’s oceans and seas. You’ll study the technologies of seafaring, histories of environmental change, and submerged landscapes. This subject incorporates elements of traditional archaeology, ethnography, maritime history and marine science.

You can apply to study our maritime archaeology master’s degree as either an MA or MSc at Southampton.

MA Maritime Archaeology offers the same course content as our MSc Maritime Archaeology but you’ll take a more humanities-based approach through your module choices and dissertation topic.

The course draws on the world-leading expertise of the Centre for Maritime Archaeology to offer an unparalleled breadth and depth of content. The course is designed to allow rapid development of the diverse academic knowledge and practical skills required to work in this field, including:

  • the latest methods for data acquisition and integration
  • academic research and dissemination
  • archaeological fieldwork

This means you’ll cover all aspects of maritime archaeology, from those who wish to focus on field-based activities, both above and underwater archaeology, through to laboratory or library-based research.

Careers

Graduates from this programme will be suited to work in a wide range of careers. Specifically they will be well suited to maritime archaeological posts in:

  • academic, commercial, and cultural resource management
  • heritage
  • tourism
  • non-governmental organisations (NGO)

More broadly the skills and knowledge developed are appropriate to work in offshore industries, the media and business settings.
