Comments about MA Archaeology - At the institution - Nottingham - Nottinghamshire

  • Objectives
    This course has been designed to introduce you to Archaeology as a discipline for the first time. If your first degree was in a different subject, this is an excellent way to convert to Archaeology. If you already have a degree in an aspect of Archaeology and wish to focus on another area, this course is also suitable for you. This course is taught at a significantly higher level than in an undergraduate degree and it will also provide you with the range of skills necessary to undertake research. The MA in Archaeology can be regarded as an ideal second degree if you wish to pursue the one-year MA and three years by research suggested by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
