Archaeology Masters programme

University of Southampton’s Faculty of Humanities has come up with a new MA/MSc in Archaeological Survey and Landscape programme for the academic year 2011-12. The study of archaeological landscapes and the use of survey methods is one of the most fundamental areas of research within the discipline of Archaeology.

The programme is designed to teach postgraduate students a range of skills and approaches to the practice of field archaeology, with a particular emphasis on the significance of archaeological monuments and materials in their landscape context.

The programme consists of six modules, covering the main aspects of archaeological survey; archaeological survey and recording (including survey of the built environment), archaeological geophysics, and archaeological field evaluation.

In addition students will take modules in Core Computing and Geographical Information Systems, and the Research Skills module. The final component of the course is formed by a dissertation for which students will be expected to work on a research topic that combines various methods of evaluation and survey.

The start date of the programme is September 29 and applications will be accepted till the commencement of the programme. The candidates with first or upper second-class honours degree or equivalent can apply for the programme and the fee for the same is £13,156.

Those who wish to apply for the course can visit the postgraduate application page of the Faculty of Humanities. For further information, visit http://www.southampton.ac.uk/archaeology/ or contact the course convenor at K.D.Strutt@soton.ac.uk
