Postgraduate Taught Masters Courses


Our MA and MSc Courses




Our Postgraduate Taught Masters courses offer you flexibility and choice, with the opportunity to pursue your own interests through a wide range of optional modules. 

Each course is designed to equip you with valuable employment skills and prepare you for your future career.  If you’re seeking to move into an archaeological-related field from a different academic or employment background, our courses and supportive staff will help you realise your ambitions and develop professionally.

Graduates from our MA and MSc courses successfully compete for some of the most sought-after archaeological posts in the World.  The transferrable skills our students develop through their Masters studies mean that, upon completion of their courses, our graduates are also in demand from a wide variety of employers outside of the sector. 



We offer all but one of our Masters courses as either full time study (one year) or part time study (two years). See individual course descriptions for details.
