Postgraduate Study by Distance Learning
Our MA (Master of Arts) courses are postgraduate level courses. They will be suitable for you if you already have an undergraduate degree or are already an archaeology professional with relevant skills and experience. You should consider taking one of our MA courses if you want to enhance your existing knowledge of archaeology or study for an advanced qualification.
If you know from the outset that you can’t or don’t want to commit to a full MA, you can apply to do a Postgraduate Certificate, which involves taking two taught modules, or a Postgraduate Diploma, which involves taking four taught modules. Similarly, if for any reason you are unable to complete the full MA you can opt to leave with a lower award. Successful completion of the first two modules (60 credits) entitles you to a Postgraduate Certificate or successful completion of four taught modules (120 credits) entitles you to a Postgraduate Diploma.
Our taught postgraduate programmes are:
Our PhD programme is the most advanced level of study that we offer. You should consider taking our PhD by distance learning if you want to become a professional researcher in archaeology or ancient history, or if you want to demonstrate that you have the full range of theoretical and practical skills at the highest levels.
