About

The MPhil Archaeology programme from University of York is a degree of considerable distinction in its own right, which may appeal to candidates who, for one reason or another, regard the more demanding requirements of the PhD as impractical.

Overview

Key Features

The MPhil is offered, according to subject area, in Archaeology or in Conservation Studies.

Candidates must register for a period of not less than six terms of full-time study, or twelve terms of part-time study, under the direction of a designated supervisor and Thesis Advisory Panel. In certain circumstances, students are registered provisionally for a MPhil, and confirmation of registration will be made not earlier than the end of the second term nor usually later than the end of the third term of full-time study, or for part-time students not earlier than the fourth term nor later than the sixth term (see Ordinances and Regulations, Regulation 2.4).

Candidates of the Archaeology programme from University of York shall submit a thesis of no more than 60,000 words (or their equivalent in tables and illustrations, but excluding prefatory and bibliographic material, appendices and catalogues), which demonstrates an ability to investigate and evaluate a chosen topic critically and with some originality, and to set this within a good general understanding of its field of learning. The thesis would be expected to meet the standards of presentation, illustration, and documentation which apply in the profession. The thesis should be submitted within one year of the end of the period of full registration.
