Course summary

Delivered by Southampton’s world-leading Centre for Maritime Archaeology, our MA and MSc programmes embrace the theory and practice of maritime archaeology. Core and compulsory modules, common to both pathways, will introduce you to maritime aspects of culture in semester 1 and the practical application of maritime archaeological skills in semester 2. You will investigate and understand submerged landscapes, maritime cultures, shipwrecks, and the history and development of watercraft. The MA and MSc programmes balance practical field-based instruction and experience, lab-based analysis, and computer software familiarity, with the traditional academic rigour required for masters level study. Where possible, this is informed by active research projects taking place within Archaeology at Southampton, and by our partners within the University such as Oceanography, Ship Science, Maritime Law and Electronics and Computer Science. Professional body: Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) (formerly Institute of Field Archaeologists).
