Program description

MSc in Material Culture & Artefact Studies

Material culture and artefact studies combines the archaeological recovery and specialist examination of an object with its presentation, management and understanding within a cultural context.

The taught component consists of core courses and optional courses, running over two semesters.

Assessment is normally focused on written performance, but oral presentation skills and other modes of assessment allow you to develop your writing skills in a number of formats. This is in addition to the practical emphasis on developing your ability to interpret and analyse artefacts.

For the MSc you can opt to do either a dissertation or an extended work placement (assessed by work placement eportfolio and either a research report or a student exhibition design).

Core courses:

  • Material culture in context
  • The process of artefact studies

Optional courses include modules such as:

  • Lithic analysis
  • Independent study
  • Critical themes in the display and reception of objects
  • Early medieval artefacts 
  • Viking and late Norse artefacts (AD 750-1350). 
  • Optional courses drawn from Archaeology or from other programs across the University can be taken by agreement with the program convener

Admission requirements

The entry requirement for this postgraduate taught program is a 2.1 Honours degree, or an equivalent qualification in Archaeology or another relevant subject (for example Anthropology, Geography, Geology, History or Environmental Science); or suitable practical experience.
