Degrees Offered:

M.A.-Aegean Archaeology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The course is ideal if you want to deepen your understanding of the prehistory and history of this region - and it creates a strong platform for future doctoral research in any aspect of Aegean archaeology.

Sheffield is home to the largest group of Aegean prehistorians in the United Kingdom. Our course draws heavily on their wide-ranging and groundbreaking research – and combines it with the department´s strengths in landscape archaeology, in the integration of textual and material evidence, and in archaeological science.

In all our courses, we stress the integration of `humanities´ and `science-based´ approaches to produce a deeper understanding of past humanity, and you'll have the opportunity to work between and across different view points and approaches, and to make your own mind up about their strengths and weaknesses. What we will ask of you, as a member of our lively academic community, is that you learn, think and develop your own answers to the questions raised.
