Entry Requirements

In each year of this degree you will take two Egyptological modules. The material culture pathway begins by acquainting you with the archaeology and history of Ancient Egypt, and through the second and third years, you continue to study facets of ancient Egyptian culture through its material remains (social organisation, funerary culture, and religious thought). The language pathway introduces you to the classical phase of the Egyptian language in the first year (‘Middle Egyptian’), and over the following two years you consolidate and build on that knowledge through exposure to a variety of texts (from documents to fine literature). On completion, you will have a solid grasp of key aspects of Ancient Egyptian language and culture, and will be able to relate your studies of this particular culture to your broader studies.
