This programme provides a general training for those who wish to study archaeology as a higher degree, and offers considerable flexibility to answer the needs of those with a range of different backgrounds. Two pathways are offered. In the first, taught modules are taken to the value of 120 credits and the dissertation represents 60 credits; this pathway is suitable for those without a first degree in archaeology who wish to engage in research in the subject, or those who require more specific subject teaching. In the second, the dissertation accounts for 90 credits (half the total), and is intended for those with a degree in archaeology who want to devote more time to research. Both pathways are intended to serve as research training to suit the requirements of the AHRC’s postgraduate grants competition. The wide range of option modules offers unrivalled choice for candidates to put together the programme that suits them best.
Entry requirements An appropriate degree in Archaeology or a related subject, normally at 2:1 level or above. For the Wetland Archaeology Masters, an Honours degree at 2:1 level or above in Archaeology, Geography, Environmental Science, or cognate discipline is required. Applicants with non-standard qualifications should contact the programme director to discuss admission.
