Postgraduate Study by Distance Learning
Our MA (Master of Arts) courses are postgraduate level courses. They will be suitable if you already have a relevant undergraduate degree or are already an archaeology professional with relevant skills and experience. MA study will enhance your knowledge of archaeology or give scope to study for a more 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, comprising 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, requiring you to reserach and write a substantial body of work on an agreed theme. A PhD may help you to become a professional researcher in archaeology or ancient history, or to develop a range of theoretical and practical skills at the highest levels.
