MSc Geoarchaeology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

An understanding of context is critical to a modern archaeology. The layers and deposits within which archaeological objects are situated provide their most immediate context. Our MSc in Geoarchaeology, which explores and builds on the connections between archaeology and the earth sciences, provides you with the knowledge and skills to understand the formation processes that lead to the creation of archaeological layers, sites and landscapes. Geoarchaeology is fundamental to both professional and academic archaeology – and this programme is designed both to appeal to those who want to pursue doctoral research in the subject, and to meet the need for skilled specialists within commercial archaeology and in environmental management in governmental and non-governmental organisations as well as in private practice.
