The MA in Archaeological Practice from University of Malta is strongly tailored towards professional relevance and will make extensive use of archaeological sites and monuments in one of the richest archaeological landscapes of the Mediterranean. A substantial part of the programme relies on core modules that are compulsory; two electives (10 ECTS) are being offered to allow students a degree of specialist training in either of two fields. In addition, students will be expected to write a dissertation (30 ECTS) and follow a mandatory 4-week summer placement (5 ECTS). The successful completion of the programme will ensure that students can participate in the effective management of important archaeological resources.
Building on a typical undergraduate archaeology curriculum (EQF Level 6), the programme is designed to provide participants with a combination of theory and intensive practical training that will provide them with skills and competences that are standard requirements for archaeological practice today.
Career opportunites and access to further studies
The course provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to follow careers in developer-funded archaeology or other type of archaeological practice in the broader heritage management sector.
It also provides students with an ideal gateway to MPhil/PhD research oriented towards applications of archaeological concepts and strategies.
