About

In this Mediterranean Archaeology programme from University College London (UCL), students will develop an understanding of Mediterranean societies from earliest times through Classical antiquity until the early medieval period, and of major interpretative paradigms and principal investigative techniques - including fieldwork and archaeological science - applied to the Mediterranean. 

Overview

The Mediterranean, the world' s largest inland sea and the interface of Europe, Africa and western Asia, is one of the major crucibles of cultural, economic and political change in world history, a focus of scholarship for all periods between the Palaeolithic and the present, and a place where the past plays a critical role in the present, as well as in the creation of a viable future.

One or more specific regions will be analysed in depth from a comparative perspective, and Mediterranean societies will be studied holistically.

Careers

Graduates of this Mediterranean Archaeology programme from University College London (UCL) are expected to pursue further studies at PhD level or embark on a wide range of professional careers both within and beyond archaeology.

Employability

Successful graduates will have been fully prepared to undertake research on ancient Mediterranean societies, from a comparative region/period/theme-specific perspective, and will also possess the expert background knowledge to move on to related professional work in or on the Mediterranean (subject to the particular requirements of the role). 

They will also have honed their transferable skills in critical analysis, debate, presentation and writing skills that are key to any future professional career.
