Course info

Summary

The Antiquity MA: Archaeology pathway is for anyone fascinated by the study of archaeology and the physical remains of the ancient world.

This is the degree for you if you enjoyed studying the ancient world as an undergraduate and would now like to study its archaeology in greater depth and at a higher level, or if you want to develop and expand your existing expertise in archaeology.

Working with experts currently engaged in excavations from all regions and periods of antiquity, you will receive training in the theory and practice of archaeology and in the application of scientific and environmental methods.

You will also have the opportunity to work with our own collection of Greek and Roman artefacts housed in the Archaeology Museum. The Archaeology pathway provides an excellent foundation for further archaeological research in any period of antiquity such as: Minoan and Mycenaean palace societies, archaic and classical Greece, the Hellenistic age, Republican and Imperial Rome, Late Antiquity or Byzantium.

Employability

Your degree will provide excellent preparation for your future career, but this can also be enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University and the College of Arts and Law.

The University's Careers Network provides expert guidance and activities especially for postgraduates, which will help you achieve your career goals. The College of Arts and Law also has a dedicated careers and employability team who offer tailored advice and a programme of College-specific careers events.

You will be encouraged to make the most of your postgraduate experience and will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive one-to-one careers advice, including guidance on your job applications, writing your CV and improving your interview technique, whether you are looking for a career inside or outside of academia
  • Meet employers face-to-face at on-campus recruitment fairs and employer presentations
  • Attend an annual programme of careers fairs, skills workshops and conferences, including bespoke events for postgraduates in the College of Arts and Law
