You can apply to study Maritime Archaeology as either an MSc or an MA at Southampton.
This MSc version offers the same course content as our MA Maritime Archaeology degree but you’ll take a more science-based approach through your module choices and dissertation topic.
The Maritime Archaeology MSc course offered at the University of Southampton draws on the world-leading expertise of the Centre for Maritime Archaeology to offer an unparalleled breadth and depth of content.
The course is designed to allow rapid development of the diverse academic knowledge and practical skills required to work in this field, including:
- the latest methods for data acquisition and integration
- academic research and dissemination
- archaeological fieldwork
This means you’ll cover all aspects of maritime archaeology, from those who wish to focus on field-based activities, both above and under water, through to laboratory or library-based research.
With this degree you'll be qualified to work as a maritime archaeologist in a wide range of careers. Areas you could work in include:
- academic, commercial and cultural resource management
- non-governmental organisations (NGO)
The skills and knowledge you'll develop will also be sought after in offshore industries, the media and business settings.
