Course content

Memorial University’s Department of Archaeology includes archaeologists and bioarchaeologists whose interests span the ancient, precontact and historical records of the New and Old Worlds. The Department has particular strengths in the study of the North Atlantic region, and maintains active field research programs in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador. We are interested in the analysis of biological and cultural materials, theory, archaeological science and the history of archaeology. Since awarding our first MA in Archaeology in 1973 our graduate program has steadily expanded. We introduced a doctoral program in 2001, and now have a thriving community of graduate students working on a range of historical, indigenous and bioarchaeological projects.

Archaeology at Memorial has an international reputation due to the strong research profiles of its faculty members and students and its vibrant teaching programs. Students have access to state of the art in-house laboratory facilities and collections, and to a wide range of equipment and expertise in other departments that is sustained by faculty cross-appointments and cooperative research programs. We provide students with the opportunity and support to develop strong field-, lab- and theory-based research projects of their own, and to join a community of scholars with an abiding curiosity about the material cultural and biological records of the human past.

The MA degree is offered in archaeology and bioarchaeology. It involves coursework and a thesis and can be completed in two years of full-time study.
