MA in Archaeology
Co-ordinator: Stephen Shennan
The MA in Archaeology is the broadest of our degree programmes allowing the widest range of course options. An integral element is a critical introduction to current archaeological theory and interpretive trends. The MA is structured around these core courses, taught through a weekly seminar discussing the historical development and current issues in archaeological theory. Additionally, students chose from a large set of graduate course options covering most world regions, time periods, and many specialised theoretical topics. A 15,000-word dissertation on a subject of the student’s choice, supervised by a member of staff, is also required. Flexibility is a strength of this MA; the degree serves as an excellent expansion of undergraduate studies or as a self-designed foundation for further post-graduate and professional work.
