Museum Research Associate Dr. Joyce Tyldesley is delighted to announce the inauguration of a new Diploma in Egyptology, building on the very successful Certificate Course run for many years by the University of Manchester.
More details can be found here and Dr. Tyldesley will be posting further information on this blog soon. Here at the Museum we look forward to integrating the Egypt and Sudan collection into resources offered by the course.
Diploma in Egyptology (Distance Learning)
Programme Director: Dr Joyce Tyldesley
Course Tutors: Dr Joyce Tyldesley and Dr Glenn Godenho
This two year programme provides an extension to the world-renowned Manchester Certificate in Egyptology, and is open to students who already have 120 UK university credits (or equivalent) in Egyptology or a related subject. It provides the opportunity for the more in-depth serious, academic study of Egyptology at The University of Manchester. The Diploma in Egyptology is taught by internationally recognised scholars and draws upon the important Egyptological collections of the University’s Museum.
The Diploma in Egyptology is delivered entirely on-line via the Blackboard Virtual e-learning platform. It offers a tried and tested combination of written Learning Modules, specially recorded lectures, assessments and appraisals. Throughout the Diploma there is the opportunity for group discussion via online tutorial groups and discussion boards.
Course Begins: 01 October 2012 (Blackboard open September 2012)
Applications open: 30 March 2012
Deadline for applications: 30 June 2012
