In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules.

The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Archaeology studies the history and culture of past civilizations by examining the artifacts and structures left behind, including their tools, artwork, religious relics, and physical remains. Advanced students will typically pick a focus of interest, such as a type of society, a particular region or a specific period in time.
