About the course

This course is unique in its focus on the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. It offers the opportunity to consider wider archaeological concepts and theoretical issues, utilising world-class sites in Orkney and the North Atlantic region.

The MLitt Archaeological Studies will enable you to engage critically with current themes and debates in archaeological practice, theory and method.

There are a wide range of module options which draw on the research specialisms of the Archaeology Institute staff and these provide you with the flexibility to combine taught modules and dissertation research according to your own research interests.

Student Profile(s)

Martin Carruthers Curriculum Leader for Archaeology; and Programme Leader for MSc Archaeological Practice; and MLitt Archaeological Studies

The Archaeology Institute combines the academic and scholarly prowess of the teaching team, who are based across the Highlands and Islands, with the professional and applied skills of the consultancy field unit Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA). We are the only Scottish university with an archaeology teaching department to have such a dynamic ‘in-house’ relationship with the archaeology industry. This ‘real-world’ professional insight means that added value is given to the student experience.

Martin Carruthers, Curriculum Leader for Archaeology; and Programme Leader for MSc Archaeological Practice; and MLitt Archaeological Studies, talks about the benefits of studying archaeology with the university.
