About the course

This innovative course, taught jointly between the Management School and the Department of Archaeology, is the first of its kind in the UK. This course combines the strengths of both departments, whilst actively forging close links with the heritage sector within our region, nationally and overseas. These links with industry form an integral feature of your studies, providing you with the opportunity to apply the principles you learn to real world situations.

Your future

Each of our masters courses is designed to equip you with valuable employment skills and prepare you for your future career. If you’re seeking to move into an archaeology-related field from a different academic or employment background, our courses and supportive staff will help you to realise your ambitions and develop professionally.

Graduates from our MA and MSc courses successfully compete for some of the most sought-after archaeological posts in the world. Our courses help students to develop essential transferable skills, and upon graduation they are also in demand by a wide variety of employers outside of the sector.Many of our graduates decide to continue their studies, carrying out doctoral research in their chosen specialist field, equipped with a solid theoretical and practical grounding from which to develop their research.
