About

Find out more information about Archaeology

Archaeology focuses on ancient and old cultures and civilizations and their social and cultural composition. All of this is done through research, excavations, analysis, interpreting and documenting the discovered evidence. Ancient civilizations expressed their cultural richness through more ways besides writing, challenging archaeology to find creative ways to complete their complex historical puzzle using innovative new means and creative solutions.

Students who enrol in a Master’s degree in archaeology cam specialize in one of the field’s main sub-disciplines: historical archaeology, ethno-archaeology and experimental archaeology. However, since a significant amount of evidence has been discovered, modern archaeology now is a processual discipline, that follows science and evidence that can be tested using modern technology.

Archaeology involves a lot of practice, so that students can quickly develop observation and analytical skills. A Master’s degree in archaeology places students on the employment market as archaeologists, heritage managers, museum education officers, museum/gallery curators or even as archivists or cartographers.
