The Department of Archaeology offers the postgraduate degrees of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Arts (MA) by research and thesis. Research Higher Degree students are able to undertake research in a wide range of areas, subject to the availability of a supervisor in the Department and approval for the research. To gain a better idea of where our research interests lie, see our Research Themes.

To be accepted into an Archaeology Research Higher Degree, students need first to contact a potential supervisor and have them agree to supervise them, then submit a written proposal for assessment by the department.

Once a student’s research project has been accepted by the department, they can then apply for a scholarship and to the Flinders Office of Graduate Research.

For further information about undertaking a research higher degree in the Department of Archaeology at Flinders University please contact the Research Higher Degrees coordinator Dr Jonathan Benjamin.
