Program Description

The MSc in European Prehistories is designed for students interested in the exciting challenges and opportunities that studying our prehistoric past can offer. With its long view on contemporary concerns such as social inequality, migration, and the relationship between human behaviour, landscape and climatic change, prehistoric archaeology is uniquely placed to provide you with a critical perspective on some of the most pressing issues today.

UCD School of Archaeology has an international reputation in the study of prehistoric archaeology, with one of the largest groups of researchers in this field anywhere in the world. You will be part of a dynamic, a friendly and international postgraduate community in a school with a 160-year history of exceptional archaeological research. Our approach is global in perspective, but you will also be able to explore and study first-hand Ireland’s extraordinary cultural heritage. You will benefit from UCD’s proximity to some of the best-preserved and most spectacular prehistoric monuments and landscapes in Europe as well as to key cultural institutions such as the National Museum of Ireland with its outstanding prehistory collections.

You will learn to combine innovative archaeological and scientific approaches with current theoretical perspectives to examine the material remains of prehistoric societies, developing a sophisticated understanding of how different field and laboratory methods can be employed to answer key research questions in prehistory. You will gain skills in project design and independent research, data analysis and interpretation, and communicating the past to different stakeholder groups.
