Your project will take one year full-time or two years part-time. It is suitable if you want to undertake a first research degree as an isolated culmination of taught studies, or if you are considering further research in form of a PhD.
You will submit a thesis of up to 40,000 words, demonstrating original research with a significant contribution to the subject area.
This is followed by an oral examination of the thesis (a viva voce examination, or viva).
Your thesis may relate to ancient Egyptian history, archaeology, religion, languages encompassing all stages of Egyptian language including demotic and hieroglyphic Graeco-Roman temple texts, literature, and culture, including the Ptolemaic and Roman periods.
Working at an elite academic level, you will be introduced to key concepts and interpretative techniques shaping the study of Egyptology.
This Egyptology (by Research) programme at Swansea University develops research skills needed for high-level work in any field of Egyptology, and you are supported by a range of skills and training programmes available on campus.
