The MA by Research in Egyptology is a research degree pursued over one year full-time or two years part-time. This MA allows students to study in depth a topic related to the history, archaeology, religion, languages (all stages of the ancient Egyptian language, including Demotic and the hieroglyphic Graeco-Roman temple texts), literature, and culture of ancient Egypt, including the Ptolemaic and Roman periods.

The MA by Research in Egyptology is ideal for those who would like to do an initial research degree, either as a stand-alone culmination to their studies or with a view to further, subsequent research, e.g. in form of a PhD.

Research proposals are invited on any topic for which staff can provide supervision.

For informal enquiries regarding the MA by Research in Egyptology please contact: Dr Fritz-Gregor Herrmann ().

Key Features of MA by Research in Egyptology

Students enrolled on the MA by Research in Egyptology study a topic of their own devising and complete an independent, original research thesis of 40,000 words on an Egyptological topic. Egyptology students are encouraged to develop a methodological awareness and are introduced to key concepts and interpretative techniques that shape the study of ancient Egypt. This Egyptology programme develops research skills needed for high-level work in any field of Egyptology. Students enrolled on the MA by Research in Egyptology will benefit from an invaluable, unique resource is the Egypt Centre located adjacent to the College of Arts and Humanities on the Park Campus (http://www.egypt.swan.ac.uk/).

The research of our staff and postgraduates is integral to the life of the Department of History and Classics, and it means that Swansea is a dynamic, exciting, and stimulating place to study. History and Classics is part of the Research Institute for the Arts and Humanities (RIAH: http://www.swansea.ac.uk/riah/), which organises a large number of seminars, conferences, and other research activities. Students have access to skills and training programmes offered by the College of Arts and Humanities and the University.
