Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

Archaeology uses the structures and relics of past civilizations to learn more about their history and culture. Among the items studied are tools, religious artifacts, artwork and physical remains. A specific focus of study will normally be chosen, such as a geographic area, type of society or time period.

While a research degree should be very rewarding personally, it is also a serious and sometimes intense undertaking. Under the current system, a full-time doctoral student has three years to complete a full draft of her or his thesis and then a further one year for writing up (known as a 3+1 degree). Research degrees are generally undertaken by individuals who aim to become professionals in the field of art history and/or archaeology, whether as academics who carry out research and teach in universities or as curators or educators in museums, libraries or archives, or in any number of other related areas such as academic publishing or even the commercial art world. It is generally a good idea to have some experience of work outside university before applying to a doctoral programme, for example, in some role in a museum or gallery. -

Our PhD in Archaeology offers you the opportunity to study archaeology at an advanced level through independent research. The Archaeology subject area offers research supervision across a wide range of fields. Our research interests range from human osteoarchaeology and forensic anthropology to Roman archaeology, early civilisations and urban societies in the Mediterranean and Europe, the Byzantine world and late antiquity, late hunter-gatherers and the spread of farming in Europe, megalithic monuments, later European prehistory and the archaeology of Scotland. These research areas are complemented by research expertise in related disciplines elsewhere in the School and the University. -
