Program Description:

The programme is designed for students who wish to study the archaeology of the classical and late antique world. It will prepare you for a PhD in classical archaeology and to enter professions requiring high-level skills in literacy, research and project management. You take compulsory modules that cover archaeological method and theory (10 credits), research training (10 credits), Roman archaeology (30 credits) and Greek archaeology (30 credits). The seminar-based modules in Greek and Roman archaeology include sessions in both Athens and Rome. The remaining taught part of the programme (40 credits) enables you to choose from a wide range of modules. You may choose another period-based or thematic module in archaeology, and/or acquire advanced practical skills through modules in artefact analysis, GIS or other computing techniques, heritage management and bioarchaeology. Modules in ancient or modern languages are also available. All students undertake a dissertation in classical archaeology (60 credits).
