You can apply to study our maritime archaeology master’s degree as either an MA or MSc at Southampton.
The Maritime Archaeology MA course offered at the University of Southampton offers the same course content as our MSc Maritime Archaeology but you’ll take a more humanities-based approach through your module choices and dissertation topic.
The course 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 underwater archaeology, through to laboratory or library-based research.
Graduates from this programme will be suited to work in a wide range of careers. Specifically they will be well suited to maritime archaeological posts in:
- academic, commercial, and cultural resource management
- non-governmental organisations (NGO)
More broadly the skills and knowledge developed are appropriate to work in offshore industries, the media and business settings.
