Studying Archaeology at Postgraduate Level: Research Degrees
How do I choose a research degree?
You will already have a topic that interests you, or you can ask a lecturer if they have a suitable range of topics that they think might be worth investigating. You may have done a topic for your undergraduate dissertation that could be explored in more detail. If you have a broad area of interest, it would be worth looking at university website staff pages to find a lecturer covering the same area and contact them for likely topics. Most universities now expect students to study for a Masters degree first before embarking on a PhD, but you may find some who would be prepared to accept you straight onto a PhD, if you had top grade for your undergraduate degree.
