Through our MPhil and PhD in Archaeology you'll conduct original and advanced research into a specialist area of archaeology.
Our Archaeology MPhil and PhD programmes are research degrees. They are conducted as supervised independent study and are assessed through a single written document that is supported with a viva voce examination.
Both degrees involve the production of new knowledge through original research and advanced scholarship, exploring a field of academic study in detail. This involves detailed understanding of the methods, techniques and approaches needed to produce such knowledge, and the wider context of the subject of study.
Our PhD students produce a thesis which includes material worthy of academic publication. A PhD qualification is usually necessary for an academic career involving post-doctoral research and/or lecturing.
This is a perfect programme to advance your academic career in archaeology. You will also develop employability skills including:
- project management
- report writing
- independent working
These programmes are based in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology. They cover a wide range of specialisms.
Research supervision in a range of periods, regions and themes.
