Master of Archaeological Studies


Course Description

The archaeological studies degrees are suitable if you are interested in understanding the human past through archaeological material. You will develop your understanding of the main perspectives of modern archaeology and explore archaeological science, heritage and archaeological research techniques. The degrees approach archaeology from the perspective of humanities and social sciences, rather than from a scientific perspective, as is the case with the Master of Archaeological Science.
