Masters degrees

For graduates in Egyptology or a related discipline, our MA degree will enable you to deepen your knowledge of Egyptian language and/or material culture and provide intensive preparation for research if you wish to continue to PhD level. We will encourage you to take full advantage of the range of classes that we offer and to sit on available modules relevant to your research interests.

Our MRes programme involves more independent study than the MA and is often a route to a PhD. We will provide a personalised introduction to research that will allow you to develop as an independent researcher.
