Postgraduate

Our MA (Master of Arts) courses are postgraduate-level courses. They will be suitable if you already have a relevant undergraduate degree, or if you are an archaeology or heritage professional with relevant skills and experience. Masters-level study will enhance your knowledge and give you scope to study for a more advanced qualification, such as a PhD.

If you know from the outset that you can't or don't want to commit to a full Masters degree, you can apply to do a Postgraduate Certificate, which involves taking two taught modules, or a Postgraduate Diploma, comprising four taught modules. Similarly, if for any reason you are unable to complete the full MA, you can opt to leave with a lower award. Successful completion of the first two modules (60 credits) entitles you to a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) or successful completion of four taught modules (120 credits) entitles you to a Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip).
