This programme focuses on dating and chronologies taught in four core modules. It includes training in dating methods, and the application of these to chronological problems, together with skills development in analysis and use of the latest software for modelling of results. The programme is supported by practical AMS 14C dating, tephrochronology and dendrochronology using state-of-the-art equipment in the 14CHRONO Centre, enabling students to acquire ‘hands on’ skills through the preparation and dating of their own samples.
An MSc undertaken on a full-time basis takes one calendar year and two years as a part-time student. For acceptance onto an MSc programme applicants will normally be expected to have achieved a first class or 2.1 Honours degree (UK) in a relevant subject or equivalent recognised qualification. For a postgraduate (PG) Diploma or Certificate, an applicant will normally be expected to have a high 2.2 Honours degree (57%) or above, or equivalent recognised qualification in a relevant subject.
Expertise within the School
With access to excellent laboratory facilities as well as other archaeological and palaeoecological resources, students will experience an exciting and practical learning environment. This is reinforced by the international recognition of the leading research work undertaken by staff in Palaeoecology which, in turn, is reflected in the teaching and academic guidance provided to our postgraduate students.
