Archaeology

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. 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.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
