MA PG Dip PG Cert The Classical Mediterranean (Distance Learning)

  • DeadlineStudy Details:

    MA/PGDip/PGCert 1 or 2 years full- or part-time by distance learning

Course Description

This postgraduate degree provides an exciting and challenging forum for you to explore the archaeology and history of the Classical Mediterranean world. You will study and interpret evidence from the Mediterranean to gain a deeper understanding of the societies and economies that shaped classical antiquity.

Our course questions the ways in which the classical past may be reconstructed and will equip you with the analytical skills to identify the debates surrounding textual and material sources, and encourage you to interrogate current perceptions of Greek and Roman societies.

During the course, you will learn to engage more critically with archaeological issues and debates, developing skills in the analysis and evaluation of data of many kinds and from many sources. We seek to equip you with a broad critical understanding of both the potential and the limitations of different forms of archaeological evidence and develop your ability to present and use your sources effectively.

Entry Requirements

2:1 degree in archaeology (or anthropology in North America) or classical studies.

We will consider applicants who do not have a degree but have extensive professional archaeological experience.
