Course description

The Egyptology Diploma Course begins by sending you far back, to take a broad look at the history of Ancient Egypt, with an overview of how the society progressed over time. You’ll journey through the following periods: Early Dynastic Period, Old Kingdom, First Intermediate Period, Middle Kingdom, Second Intermediate Period, New Kingdom, Third Intermediate Period, Late Period and the Ptolemaic Period.

Religion was at the heart of Ancient Egypt throughout all the periods of its society. The course looks at deities, cosmology, various types of religion and how they were practised, and the role of magic in society. Also extremely important to the Ancient Egyptians was their concepts of death and the afterlife. You’ll explore these beliefs, mummification – what it was, and why and how it was done - and the significance of tombs in transitioning from life into death.

One of the great draws of Egyptology is the study of kings, queens and pharaohs. The Egyptology Diploma Course guides you through the terminology used for their rulers and how they were perceived as being divine. You’ll also take a look at some of the most important and notable figures in Egyptian history.

It is recognised that, for their time, Ancient Egyptians were a highly advanced society with progressive knowledge of medicine, astronomy, electricity, agriculture and architecture. This course guides you through the Ancient Egyptian’s understanding of each of these areas and even covers the more controversial theories that they had advanced ‘spiritual technology’ and that they were assisted by ‘ancient aliens’.

An issue that can be contentious, the Egyptology Diploma Course discusses how historians have viewed race in Ancient Egypt, how Ancient Egyptians viewed it themselves, how we look at it today, and the views of prominent historian, Cheikh Anta Diop.
