What is the objective of the course? What is it?
What does it train you for?

The course aims to provide students with a comprehensive training in archaeology. It gives them great expertise in the field of historical-cultural issues and methodology and develops practical skills. Students learn to read and manage the archaeological evidence (sites, monuments, artefacts) using a wide range of sources and methodologies. Students can choose to focus on pre-classical, classical or post-classical archaeology, history of art and architecture, material culture and landscape archaeology, or acquire a strong knowledge of methodologies and applied sciences. The course promotes and encourages international study, within the joint Degree (Göttingen University), Erasmus+ and SEMP (Swiss European Mobility Programme) programme.

What do you learn?

The primary contents of the course are the humanities (history and culture of the ancient world, archaeology). At the same time, methodological and practical skills are provided through disciplines such as archaeological methodology, chemistry for cultural heritage, geomatics, virtual archaeology and laboratory activities. By means of practical activities and internships in institutes operating in the archaeology and cultural heritage sectors, our students also learn to work in the field (archaeological excavations, surveys, and analysis of finds) both independently, under the leadership of the head of the research, and within working groups.
