Archaeology is the only discipline within the humanities that covers all of human history. The Master’s Programme in the Humanities, specialising in Archaeology, lets you analyse historical processes and phenomena. Using methods from the natural sciences, the programme gives you a broad education within cultural heritage, history and environment studies. You will also choose to specialise in an area and write a scientific essay in that field.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
If you are interested in contract archaeology, cultural heritage management, or a career as a researcher, this is the programme for you. The education is vocational but will also provide you with research skills. You will acquire skills in field work, different methods and interpretative models in the exploration of the past. In our lab you will learn Geographical Information Systems and during fieldwork you will dig under supervision.
