Course Summary

This is the degree for you if you enjoyed studying the ancient world as an undergraduate, and would now like to study Classical Archaeology in greater depth and at a higher level; or if you want to explore this aspect of antiquity and it wasn’t included in your first degree. The Antiquity MA: Classical Archaeology pathway gives you grounding in the advanced study of Greek and Roman civilisation through its physical remains, from the earliest times to the Byzantine period. Working with experts currently engaged in excavations from all regions and periods of classical antiquity, you will receive training in the theory and practice of archaeology and in the application of scientific and environmental methods. You will also have the opportunity to work with our own collection of Greek and Roman artefacts housed in the Archaeology Museum. The Classical Archaeology pathway provides an excellent foundation for further archaeological research in any period of antiquity: Minoan and Mycenaean palace societies, archaic and classical Greece, the Hellenistic age, Republican and Imperial Rome, Late Antiquity or Byzantium. This is one of several pathways available on the Antiquity MA. Your degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University. You will have opportunities to: meet employers face-to-face at on-campus recruitment fairs; attend employer presentations and skills workshops; receive individual guidance on your job applications, writing your CV and improving your interview technique; and access to comprehensive listings of hundreds of graduate jobs and work experience opportunities.
