Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

Enhance your understanding of Archaeology by region and period, through a combination of taught modules and individual research in this flexible programme.

Archwiliwch eich diddordebau o fewn archaeoleg Prydain, Ewrop a’r Canoldir, gan fanteisio ar ein harbenigedd o safon fyd-eang.

Mae ein rhaglen MA Archaeoleg wedi’i dylunio i ddatblygu hyfedredd mewn sgiliau archaeoleg sylfaenol ac adeiladu eich dealltwriaeth o gyfnodau allweddol gorffennol y ddynoliaeth.

Mae ein modiwlau opsiynol yn cynnig y cyfle i ddyfnhau eich dealltwriaeth o archaeoleg Prydain, Ewrop a’r Canoldir. Rydym yn rhoi’r cyfle i chi weithio gydag arteffactau archaeolegol er mwyn deall technolegau hynafol yn rhan o’n hystod o fodiwlau opsiynol. Yn llawer mwy na hynny, byddwch yn adeiladu dealltwriaeth o’r proffesiwn treftadaeth, gan ddatblygu sgiliau ym maes cyfathrebu treftadaeth a’i fudd cyhoeddus. 

Wrth astudio mewn amgylchedd cefnogol, byddwch yn ymuno â chymuned o ymchwilwyr sy’n ymgymryd ag ymchwil archaeolegol flaengar lle mae gwyddoniaeth, theori ac ymarfer yn dod at ei gilydd i greu amgylchedd unigryw er mwyn archwilio’r gorffennol.

Wrth gasglu profiad ymchwil yn ein labordai archaeoleg, trwy gyfleoedd i weithio’n agos gydag ymchwilwyr blaenllaw ar ystod o brosiectau, byddwch yn archwilio pwnc o ddiddordeb arbennig i chi yn eich prosiect ymchwil unigol eich hun, gyda chefnogaeth goruchwyliwr profiadol.

Bydd ein gradd meistr sydd wedi hen sefydlu yn eich paratoi i ddatblygu eich gyrfa ym maes archaeoleg broffesiynol; y paratoad perffaith ar gyfer y cam nesaf ar lefel ddoethurol.

Wrth ddathlu canmlwyddiant Archaeoleg a Chadwraeth yn 2020, rydym ymhlith y 150 gorau yn y byd (Rhestr QS o Brifysgolion Gorau’r Byd yn ôl Pwnc 2020) gyda’n hymchwil yn y 12fed safle yn y DU (Fframwaith Rhagoriaeth Ymchwil 2014).

Nodweddion unigryw

  • Training in research methods and skills including writing and public speaking, interpreting and presenting data, and designing research projects.
  • Wide choice of topic, region, period and method-based optional modules.
  • Advanced research seminars tailored to specific student interests.

Strwythur y cwrs

This is a part-time course that takes up to three years to complete. 

Taught Stage

You will take two core modules (40 credits) and four optional modules (80 credits). The options you take will depend on the pathway you choose.

Dissertation Stage

On successful completion of the taught course element you will go on to complete your dissertation (60 credits). This takes the form of an individual research project, resulting in a dissertation of around 20,000 words. 

Please note: as many of our part-time postgraduate programmes are over three years in duration, you will need to check your postgraduate loan eligibility status

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2021/22. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2021.

Blwyddyn un

You will take 60 credits worth of modules in year one.

Blwyddyn dau

 You will take 60 credits worth of modules in year two.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
