Study type Taught


Create a bespoke degree that reflects your unique interests and ambitions through one of our three pathways: Archaeology, Landscape or Heritage.

Course description

Each pathway provides a route into advanced study either for students with general interests (archaeology) or more focused interests (landscape or heritage).

You'll create a bespoke course within a clear structure that allows you to engage your specific interests in period, region or approach while building on a strong foundation of understanding archaeology as a discipline.

For all of these, you’ll choose between completing a research dissertation or developing employability through a work placement.

You’ll develop the professional and transferable skills you need to progress to a career in this field. This course is excellent preparation for a PhD.

MA students

You'll also choose your own research project and complete a dissertation, or go on a work placement and complete a report as part of your placement experience.

Please see our University website for the most up-to-date information.
