About

This Archaeology and Heritage of Asia MA course offered at the University College London (UCL) is unique in the UK in providing such a comprehensive overview of Asian archaeology and cultural heritage. 

Overview

The aim of this Archaeology and Heritage of Asia MA course offered at the University College London (UCL) is to develop a comparative appreciation of the cultural histories and heritage of Asia, moving chronologically from early human history, through movements towards the Neolithic, and the rise of cities and states, to the present day. 

It looks at current debates around conservation ethics, reconstruction and authenticity of archaeological remains.

Careers

Graduates of this programme are expected to pursue further studies at PhD level or embark on a wide range of professional careers in archaeology - in the archaeological services or heritage organisations specialising in Asian countries - and beyond.

Employability

The experience and skills acquired depends on the optional modules selected, and how those skills are developed through assessed work, practical elements and dissertation, but in general we expect students to develop expertise in the archaeology of specific regions of Asia (in particular East Asia, South Asia, Central Asia and to some extent South–East Asia) and a broader comparative, international perspective on that specific region. Students gain knowledge of both current scholarly debates in archaeology as well as heritage management issues.
