Course Summary

Create a bespoke degree that reflects your unique interests and ambitions through one of our two pathways: Cross-discipline or Classical Mediterranean.

Course description

The cross-discipline pathway provides a route into advanced study of archaeology for students with generalist interests. You’ll create a bespoke course within a clear structure that allows you to engage your specific interests in period, region or approach while building on a strong foundation of understanding archaeology as a discipline. You’ll choose between completing a research dissertation or developing employability through a work placement.

The Classical Mediterranean pathway reflects one of our departmental core strengths, the archaeology of the Classical and Mediterranean world. You’ll study the Classical Mediterranean from a range of archaeological perspectives – socio-cultural, landscape, materials, bioarchaeological – within a directed structure of core modules and a research dissertation. The additional options of existing Ancient History modules and Latin will allow you to further customise your degree.

This course is excellent preparation for a PhD. You’ll also develop the professional and transferable skills you need to progress to a career in this field.

MA students
You'll also go on a work placement and complete a report as part of your placement experience OR choose your own research project and complete a dissertation.
