The Mediterranean Archaeology Masters is designed to foster an in-depth understanding of the subject within a comparatively short period of time. The aim of the programme is to enable students to acquire a sound knowledge of archaeology in the Mediterranean region with special regard to:
· the history and development of the discipline
· links with the historical, social and natural sciences
· contemporary theoretical approaches
· current methodology and practice
· the study of specific regions or themes which may be of particular interest to students at masters, or future doctoral, level.
The programme can be taken full-time (over one year) or part-time (over two years). In order to complete the diploma stage of the degree, students are required to complete six courses over the two teaching semesters (September-April). These consist of one compulsory core course, Research Sources and Strategies in Archaeology, and five additional option courses.
In order to obtain the Masters degree, on completion of the coursework, students are required to produce a 15,000 word dissertation. Staff in Archaeology cover a wide range of specialist fields and periods of study and are happy to supervise dissertations in these and related areas. It is also possible to draw on the expertise of colleagues in History and Classics within the School.
