Postgraduate studies in Archaeology at UCD

UCD School of Archaeology has a thriving postgraduate research community and offers both taught postgraduate and research degrees. The School is the foremost archaeological research institution in Ireland and our teaching programme focuses on archaeology in Ireland and overseas. Our aim is to equip graduates to contribute to archaeology across the globe, with key concepts developed from understanding the internationally acclaimed Irish archaeological record. Perspectives and practices from archaeological landscapes across the globe will be developed through the programme, and specialisation in different geographical areas strongly encouraged. Students will execute a variety of approaches to archaeological practice including desktop, experimental work in the UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Ancient Technologies, field and lab-based techniques.

UCD is located just south of Dublin City Centre and thus offers access to all of the amenities one would expect of a UNESCO ‘City of Literature’, with a rich cultural tradition – both high brow and somewhat less elevated! The archaeologically rich Irish landscape is within easy reach of UCD and forms a key component of our teaching and research. Beyond the immediate attractions of the archaeology, the Wicklow and South Dublin mountains are within easy reach of the city, and offer fantastic outdoor leisure pursuits. Dublin itself is an extremely well connected transport hub, and provides a very good base for exploring Ireland more generally.
