This versatile programme provides a basis both for doctoral study and for career development in archaeology and in heritage and cultural environment professions.
It comprises a major individual research project, supervised by a specialist in the field of study, and a taught component that develops research and analytical skills. Potential research projects can be on any archaeological subject, as agreed with the supervisor, and there is a wide range of choice for the taught component, enabling students to build their own unique programme of study.
