The School of Archaeology is offering a two-year Master of Philosophy course (MPhil) in Archaeology. This courses is of value in itself and both provide a suitable platform for further research at doctoral level, whether at Oxford or elsewhere. As with the other Masters degrees in Archaeology, the hallmark of these degrees is flexibility, allowing students to select those options most suitable for them as individuals.
As well as specialisations in the fields of Classical Archaeology and Archaeological Science, Oxford boasts a long tradition of archaeological research in Europe and other parts of the world. Making full use of the opportunities for study and research provided by the Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums and their respective libraries, as well as of the University's other archaeological resources, the taught courses in Archaeology allow graduate students to develop their interests in Europe and the world, over a wide time range. Major areas of regional expertise lie in the development of European society from the Palaeolithic period until the Early Middle Ages, sub-Saharan Africa, Australasia, and the Islamic world. Additionally, staff members have interests in, and can provide teaching that covers, landscape archaeology, the archaeology of colonialism, archaeological method and theory and hunter-gatherer archaeology.
