Course summary

About this course

Explore people's changing relationships with the world’s oceans and seas on this science-focused maritime archaeology master's degree at the University of Southampton. You’ll study the technologies of seafaring, histories of environmental change, and underwater landscapes. This subject incorporates elements of traditional archaeology, ethnography, maritime history and marine science.

You can apply to study Maritime Archaeology as either an MSc or an MA at Southampton.

This MSc version offers the same course content as our MA Maritime Archaeology degree but you’ll take a more science-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 under water, through to laboratory or library-based research.

Careers

With this degree you'll be qualified to work as a maritime archaeologist in a wide range of careers. Areas you could work in include:

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