Course content

As the 'Global University of the North', Archaeology at Aberdeen has a special high-latitude focus that is not found anywhere else.
This taught MSc in Archaeology aims to provide an ‘umbrella’ programme to appeal to archaeology students from a range of backgrounds interested in pursuing specific archaeological subjects under the banner of a broad degree designation.
Our staff are prominent researchers and fieldworkers in Northern Europe, Scandinavia, the North Atlantic and the circumpolar region from Siberia to the Canadian arctic. Closer to home, the archaeology of Scotland is a natural priority. Established in 2007, we are the UK's youngest archaeology department, located at one of Europe's oldest universities.
