Course content

The MA in Ancient Egyptian Culture is a distinct programme focussing on ancient Egyptian history, language and material culture offered by specialist international researchers. Egyptology at Swansea University enjoys an invaluable asset in its purpose-built Egypt Centre, which houses about 3,000 objects from Ancient Egypt. This impressive and important collection illustrates more than 4,000 years of human development from the prehistoric to the early Christian era and plays an integral role in our teaching.

Modules on the course typically include:

  • Understanding Ancient Egyptian Culture
  • Reaching the Public: Museums and Object-Handling
  • Reading Academic German
  • Middle Egyptian I and II
  • Private life in Ancient Egypt
  • The Reign of Rameses III
