Egyptian archaeology is entering a critical phase, where teaching outside Egypt must redefine its self-appointed role as the accepted external perspective in the face of Egypt-centred and Africa-centred interpretations. Meeting this challenge, the revised Egyptian Archaeology MA at UCL aims to offer learners new approaches to Egyptian archaeology. What and how will I learn? Students gain an understanding of the current issues and debates within Egyptian archaeology, and develop critically aware perspectives on archaeological practice and research. They are encouraged to identify the key problems facing archaeology in Egypt and to consider future directions which may positively contribute to appropriate development in this field. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of two core courses (60 credits), optional courses (60 credits) and a research dissertation (60 credits). Core Modules Themes, Thought and Theory in World Archaeology: Foundations Egyptian Archaeology through the Petrie Museum Dissertationreport All MA students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 15,000 words.
