MSt Achaeological Science

Course Description

The Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art offers a one year Master of Studies course in Archaeological Science. The course is designed to give a broad but detailed grounding in the theory as well as practical experience in the major applications of science in archaeology. It is intended for archaeologists or scientists who wish to go on to undertake research in archaeological science, or archaeologists who intend to pursue a career in the management of archaeological projects or become policy makers in this area and would like to have a sound understanding of the potential of science to elucidate archaeological problems. The course can be taken for its own sake, or as preliminary training for doctoral research.

Applicants may have either a predominantly archaeological or science based education, although it is advantageous to have some experience of both subjects.

The MSt shares the taught component of the MSc course, but instead of the research project, the candidates are required to submit a 5000 word report on a practical project of approximately 6 weeks duration.
