About the course

Create a bespoke degree that reflects your unique interests and ambitions through one of our two pathways: Cross-discipline or Classical Mediterranean.

Course description

The cross-discipline pathway provides a route into advanced study of archaeology for students with generalist interests. You’ll create a bespoke course within a clear structure that allows you to engage your specific interests in period, region or approach while building on a strong foundation of understanding archaeology as a discipline. You’ll choose between completing a research dissertation or developing employability through a work placement.
