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 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 staff.
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.
