Postgraduate taught degrees

Archaeology offers a broad variety of Masters options for postgraduate taught study. These programmes are usually one year full-time or two years part-time and begin in September. There is also the option of a taught MRes in Archaeology which combines taught courses with a larger independent research component. The subject has been taught at Glasgow for over 50 years and is recognised for its commitment to excellent teaching and research. Our Masters programmes address practical, theoretical and scientific methodologies through a collection of seminars, work placements and field work.

As a subject, we work across other disciplines including History, Classics, Geography and Earth Science, American Studies, Celtic and Gaelic and Information Studies. Strong links with the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery and numerous private and public organisations including Historic Scotland and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Moments allow our students to gain field experience and benefit from a variety of visiting guest speakers.
