Course content

The Masters course in Maritime Archaeology course provides archaeology graduates with a fascinating specialism. Achieved through a variety of theoretical classroom learning and practicing archaeology in seas, rivers, lakes and intertidal environments. The in depth study of past societies and their relationship with the water, provides you with the opportunity to observe shipwrecks and the exhumed artefacts. The course is taught in six modules and whether graduates receive am Ma or MSc certificate is dependant upon the research undertaken and the focus of the dissertation. Most modules include a practical aspect of field work that lasts between one and three days. Over the year long course, this accumulates to three weeks worth of field school. Our emphasis on the practical element of the course means you learn and understand archaeological technique fast. All students are given the opportunity to participate in additional academic fieldwork and excavations ran by staff and associated organisations.
