Course content

Delivered by Southampton’s world-leading Centre for Maritime Archaeology, this course offers an unparalleled breadth and depth of content. You’ll explore the changing relationship people have had with the world’s oceans and seas. You’ll study the technologies of seafaring, histories of environmental change, and submerged landscapes. This subject incorporates elements of traditional archaeology, ethnography, maritime history and marine science.

You can apply to study Maritime Archaeology as either an MSc or an MA at Southampton. This MA Maritime Archaeology offers the same course content as our MSc Maritime Archaeology but you’ll take a more humanities-based approach through your module choices and dissertation topic.

Archaeology at Southampton is ranked 31st globally(QS World Rankings by Subject, 2022) and 3rd in the UK for Archaeology research ( REF, 2021).
