This MSc provides participants with a theoretical understanding of research questions and methodologies in the study of past human-environment interactions, including subsistence and subsistence change. The Institute of Archaeology has a long research and training tradition in environmental archaeology, and has well-established laboratory facilities and reference collections as a result. What and how will I learn? Students gain practical experience in laboratory analysis of at least one of either: identification of animal bones, identification of plant macro-remains, sedimentological analyses. They develop an understanding of stratigraphic formation processes and their implications for developing sampling strategies and are trained to collect and analyse data and report scientific results. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of three core courses (60 credits), optional courses (60 credits) and a research dissertation (60 credits). Core Modules Cultural Environments Resources and Subsistence Environmental Archaeology in Practice Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent research project, normally based on practical laboratory-based research, which culminates in a dissertation of 15,000 words. Options AT LEAST ONE OF THE FOLLOWING: Archaeobotanical Analysis in Practice Geoarchaeology I Zooarchaeology in Practice REMAINING OPTIONS ARE CHOSEN FROM: Other Masters course options from the Institute of Archaeology Further details available on subject website: http:www.ucl.ac.ukarchaeologymasterssummarymsc-enviro.htm The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, presentations, laboratory sessions, practicals, and site and museum visits. Assessment is through the dissertation, and a combination of essays, coursework, presentations, practical examination and laboratory reports, depending on the options selected. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The UCL Institute of Archaeology is the largest and most diverse department of archaeology in the UK, and provides a stimulating environment for postgraduate study. The Institute boasts a wide range of laboratory facilities relevant to this degree including dedicated laboratories for zooarchaeology (with a comparative collection of Near Eastern and European faunal remains), archaeobotany (with extensive comparative collections for seeds, wood, tubers, phytoliths and pollen) phytolith processing, sedimentology and scanning electron microscopy. UCL is located in central London, close to the resources of the British Museum, the British Library and the Natural History Museum. Your future career We expect that some graduates of the programme will go on to PhD studies but that others will be well-placed to pursue a wide range of professional careers both within and beyond archaeology, including employment as environmental specialists for contract archaeology units. Entry Requirements A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. How to apply Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? The programme is particularly suitable for students with a first degree in archaeology or a relevant subject who wish to develop skills and training in research methods relevant to environmental archaeology, and to gain practical training in laboratory practice in the areas of archaeozoology, geoarchaeology or archaeobotany. Funding UK and EU students are eligible to apply for Arts and Humanities Research Council funding. Those who are accepted for this Master's programme may also be eligible to apply to the Institute for English Heritage funded bursaries.
