The MA in Egyptology is designed for graduates in Egyptology related disciplines, who want to deepen their knowledge of Egyptian language and/or material culture.
It provides intensive preparation for research and offers you training in fields such as analytical and generic problem solving: skills that any employer will value.
The core component of the taught programme is the development of skills and practices necessary in the pursuit of scholarly research in the discipline. Our one-year curriculum puts emphasis on the integration of the taught modules (such as language, research practices, material culture, social history, landscape archaeology) with individual research projects (dissertation).
Tuition is carried mainly through weekly seminars and presentations, assisted by short lectures providing the framework knowledge needed to engage with the analysis of the material. Our MA students are also encouraged to take full advantage of the range of classes offered in the department, and to sit on available modules dispensing breadth and depth of knowledge in the areas of study relevant to their research interest.
The taught component of the programme is carried alongside and contributes directly to the shaping and advancement of the students’ individual research project (dissertation) to be completed by the end of the year (September).
