About

The Archaeology programme at University of Glasgow has an active postgraduate community, carrying out research on a wide range of topics from the Mesolithic to the present day and from Northern Scandinavia to the Eastern Mediterranean.

Overview

The postgraduates in Archaeology at University of Glasgow enjoy one of the university’s most supportive, collaborative and friendly communities on campus. Intellectually, it’s a very generous group, with lots of opportunities on offer to MLitt and PhD students to get involved in existing projects or start new ones together, whether in the field or the classroom, or through conferences and publications.

Learning outcomes

A Doctor of Philosophy may be awarded to a student whose thesis is an original work making a significant contribution to knowledge in, or understanding of, a field of study and normally containing material worthy of publication.

Thesis Length:70,000-100,000 words, including references, bibliography and appendices (other than documentary appendices).

If undertaking a practice-based doctorate the thesis will consist of a shorter word length, to be negotiated with your supervisor, but not normally under 40,000 words, in addition to a substantive piece, or pieces, of practice.

The best example of this is our own publication Love Archaeology Magazine, where there are ample chances for authors, researchers, editors, photographers and creative types to get involved.
