Course content

Pursue your passion for British, European and Mediterranean archaeology whilst developing key archaeological skills, guided by our renowned specialists.

Our MA Archaeology programme is designed to develop proficiency in fundamental archaeological skills and build your understanding of key periods of the human past.
Our optional modules provide the opportunity to deepen your understanding of British, European and Mediterranean archaeology. We give you the opportunity to work with archaeological artefacts to understand ancient technologies as part of our optional module range. Much more than this, you will build an understanding of the heritage profession, developing skills in the communication of heritage and its public benefit.
Studying in a supportive and nurturing environment, you join a community of researchers undertaking cutting-edge archaeological research where science, theory and practice converge to create a unique environment for exploring the past.
Building up research experience in our archaeological laboratories through opportunities to work closely with leading researchers on a range of projects, you will explore a topic of real interest to you in your own individual research project, supported by an experienced supervisor.
Ideal preparation for the next step at doctoral level, our well-established master’s degree will equip you to develop your career in professional archaeology.
Celebrating the centenary of Archaeology and Conservation in 2020, we’re ranked in the world top 150 (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020) while our research ranked 12th among archaeology departments in the UK (Research Excellence Framework 2014).
