    Course Description:
    The Masters degree in Archaeology offers students the opportunity to study a range of regions, periods and specialist topics in detail. The programme of study is based on Cardiff's particular teaching

From the MA, many students proceed directly to the PhD, either at Cardiff or at other UK universities.

    There are two routes available within this degree scheme:

    Route 1 General Archaeology
    Route 2 Prehistoric Britain
    Those wishing to specialise in the European Neolithic should apply for the MA European Neolithic.
