The aim of this postgraduate programme is to prepare graduate students for a professional career in field and practical archaeology. This is achieved through a combination of field and laboratory based modules with an emphasis on giving students hands-on experience under the guidance of experienced archaeology teaching staff many of whom are part of the Centre for Archaeological Fieldwork (CAF). Consequently, students gain experience through involvement with ‘live’ excavations where they learn such skills as, site surveying, archiving and care of finds and report preparation.
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.
