About these courses
Our courses have been designed to enable you to develop your skills and knowledge, whether you wish to study to enhance your career prospects or prepare for doctoral research.
Many of our courses cross the traditional academic boundary of archaeology and ancient history, enabling you to gain a wider knowledge in your chosen area.
As well as providing an excellent foundation for doctoral research, our MA courses are highly valued by employers for the detailed thematic knowledge and key transferable skills that they provide. They enable students to develop a detailed, critical understanding of their particular area of interest, allowing effective career progression in archaeology, ancient history, museums and elsewhere.
Our distance learning routes offer you the opportunity to study flexibly, while still benefiting from full support.
Most of our programmes allow you to take a full MA, a Diploma or a Postgraduate Certificate in your preferred course.
A wide range of option modules allow you to tailor many of our taught postgraduate courses to your interests.
