The MA in Celtic Archaeology offered at the Bangor University aims to deepen knowledge of archaeology beyond undergraduate level, with particular emphasis on Celtic archaeology. It provides the opportunity for students to specialise in a particular academic area, so as to gain a close understanding of the archaeological debates around it.
The programme acquaints students with relevant archaeological theoretical issues and methods of interpretation and the use of evidence. It also provides the student with the necessary research skills to produce an original piece of work on a chosen topic, under supportive supervision.
An MA in Celtic Archaeology is a versatile qualification and will give you a detailed understanding of the academic discipline of archaeology and the ability to conduct research at various levels of historical analysis. It will enhance your career opportunities in archaeology, communications, teaching, heritage industries, publishing and research.
The transferable skills acquired through this programme are beneficial in a range of other careers, including advertising, journalism, consulting etc. After successful completion of the MA in Celtic Archaeology you may also decide to pursue an academic career in archaeology, by applying for a place to study a PhD in Celtic Archaeology.
