The MPhil in Archaeology adds a student-led research project onto the MSt year. It is ideal for candidates considering on to undertake a doctoral research and wish to acquire higher levels of research skills and/or complete a medium-sized individual research project before embarking on doctoral study. In the first year, candidates will take one of a range of core papers plus an option paper, with a third subject to be taken from either set of options in a combination specific to their interests during the academic year. Most students choose to follow one of a number of streams, although this is not a formal requirement, including the archaeology of Asia, and environmental, European, maritime or Palaeolithic archaeology. In the second year, candidates take a fourth taught subject from within archaeology and work on their thesis.
