Taught Programmes

Whether you are considering a taught Master's degree in order to prepare for doctoral research, to enhance your professional skills, or to deepen your understanding of a subject you are passionate about, we can provide a number of exceptional programmes designed to meet your needs.

The four strands of the more general MA in Archaeology degree or the MSc in Archaeological Science have been developed to benefit those wishing to pursue a PhD or those with a wide ranging interest in the subject. Many graduates go on to further academic research.

If you wish to study a programme devised to prepare you for a career in professional archaeology, or the conservation, heritage, or museums sectors, we offer specialised courses: MSc in Palaeopathology, MA in Conservation, MA Museum and Artefact Studies, and our brand new MA in International Cultural Heritage Management.

Find out more about our taught programmes by visiting the individual programme pages or contact us for more information.

In 2017-18 we will be offering up to 10 Department of Archaeology Masters bursaries which cover costs toward fees (£2000 for home/EU applicants; £2500 for Overseas applicants). This includes the Ian Colquhoun Masters bursary which is aimed at students whose area of interest includes the archaeology of Northern England, metalwork, and/or British and European Prehistory.

Please check the financial support page to see more details about these and the other MA bursaries available.
