We have 79 Masters Degrees in Archaeological Science

Masters degrees in Archaeological Science equip postgraduates with the skills to undertake scientific analysis of material remains from the past.

Related subjects and postgraduate specialisms include Bioarchaeology, Paleopathology and Forensic Archaeology along with branches of Cultural Anthropology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Archaeology or Biology.

Why study a Masters in Archaeological Science?

Courses in Archaeometry advance your skills in applying physical, chemical and biological techniques to aid scientific, archaeological and geoarchaeological investigations of historic objects and land areas.

This might include for example the processes for determining the age of human remains, or to decipher the structure of a fallen monument.

Practical training includes laboratory analysis, such as carbon dating, DNA sampling, and molecular techniques such as isotopic analysis. It also covers techniques in environmental surveying, such as GIS (geographical information systems), residue analysis and sensors.

A range of specialisations are available, with paleobiology, paleobotany and paleopathology being particularly popular. These disciplines examine issues such as biological evolution, and the relationship between animals and plants, and humans and food.

Careers may include laboratory research for institutions such as universities, government departments or agencies, as well as roles in conservation and public policy.
