The MA in Egyptology is designed for graduates in Egyptology related disciplines, who want to deepen their knowledge of Egyptian language and/or material culture.
It provides intensive preparation for research and offers you training in fields such as analytical and generic problem solving: skills that any employer will value.
The core component of the taught programme is the development of skills and practices necessary in the pursuit of scholarly research in the discipline. Our one-year curriculum puts emphasis on the integration of the taught modules (such as language, research practices, material culture, social history, landscape archaeology) with individual research projects (dissertation).
Tuition is carried mainly through weekly seminars and presentations, assisted by short lectures providing the framework knowledge needed to engage with the analysis of the material. Our MA students are also encouraged to take full advantage of the range of classes offered in the department, and to sit on available modules dispensing breadth and depth of knowledge in the areas of study relevant to their research interest.
The taught component of the programme is carried alongside and contributes directly to the shaping and advancement of the students’ individual research project (dissertation) to be completed by the end of the year (September).
Our Masters programmes are designed to equip students with a wide range of transferable skills, with an emphasis on the development of both research and practical analytical skills. They equip students for further study at Postgraduate level (MPhil/PhD) and meet the training requirements of the AHRC and NERC. Research students have not only continued their studies at postdoctoral level, but also embarked on specialised long-term careers in lecturing, museum work and the heritage industry. Our degrees are a good investment in your future. Whichever direction you choose after graduation, potential employers (both nationally and internationally) appreciate the breadth of view, analytical skills and intellectual rigour that you gain by studying civilizations and periods so different from our own.
