Drawing on the skeletal collections and world-leading expertise at the School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences, the MA in Archaeology and Identity at the University of Bradford explores social interpretation of remains.
Learners will have opportunities to explore a range of archaeological periods and regions, as well as focusing on evidence from mortuary archaeology. Modules will also enable the study of artefacts, exploring biographies of objects along with material properties.
The programme will equip you to critically-engage with a diverse range of material, as well as explore the sociopolicitical contexts of interpretations of the past and the role of the past in the present.
The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.
Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.
