This MPhil is appropriate for students who are prepared for graduate work and who wish to undertake research in Egyptology, but who need further training in either the language(s) or the archaeology of the region. The student may choose either an archaeological or a linguistic emphasis. All MPhil students in the Department of Archaeology take a Research Skills module and write a dissertation (maximum 15,000 words). In addition, students taking the MPhil in Egyptology select either three modules selected from a list of modules in Egyptology, or two modules selected from a list of modules in Egyptology and one two-term module or two one-term modules from a list of optional modules in the Department of Archaeology chosen in consultation with the supervisor.
