Course content

Our MA in Egyptology is an innovative and cutting-edge course taught entirely online on a part-time basis over two years.

You will look in-depth at specific aspects of ancient Egyptian society and culture, and study the development of the field of Egyptology itself.

Our compulsory units will provide you with a well-rounded knowledge base of ancient Egyptian art, history, archaeology and texts.

Through our optional units, you will be able to tailor part of the course to your personal interests. Topics include Gender and Identity in Pharaonic Egypt, the Amarna Period and Middle Egyptian Hieroglyphs.

You will have the opportunity to learn applicable skills such as how to organise museum exhibits, how to apply successfully for research funding and how to publish articles and books at various levels, enabling you to prepare for a career in Egyptology and the heritage sector, or for doctoral study.

The online nature of the course means that you will not be required to physically attend the Manchester campus at any point during your studies. You can study from home, and this will enable you to adapt your study to existing job or personal commitments.
