M.A ARCHEOLOGY

Archaeology courses often overlap with humanities subjects such as history and classics, while also drawing on advanced scientific techniques in excavating and identifying artefacts. The fact that the subject has its feet firmly planted in both the arts and the sciences means it’s possible to study either a Master of Arts or Master of Science in archaeology. Generally speaking, the MA option is likely to be more focused on the humanities, while an MSc will involve greater emphasis on scientific methods and research. The latter could also combine archaeology with other scientific subjects – for example, an MSc in Bioarchaeology, or Archaeology with Human Osteology.

Students who enrol in a Master’s degree in archaeology cam specialize in one of the field’s main sub-disciplines: historical archaeology, ethno-archaeology and experimental archaeology. However, since a significant amount of evidence has been discovered, modern archaeology now is a processual discipline that follows science and evidence that can be tested using modern technology.

Archaeology focuses on ancient and old cultures and civilizations and their social and cultural composition. All of this is done through research, excavations, analysis, interpreting and documenting the discovered evidence. Ancient civilizations expressed their cultural richness through more ways besides writing, challenging archaeology to find creative ways to complete their complex historical puzzle using innovative new means and creative solutions.

Archaeology involves a lot of practice, so that students can quickly develop observation and analytical skills. A Master’s degree in archaeology places students on the employment market as archaeologists, heritage managers, museum education officers, museum/gallery curators or even as archivists or cartographers.
