Are you interested in archaeology and want to pursue a research career? Do you want a graduate programme which combines intensive training and a flexible structure? Then this is the programme for you!
The aim of the two-year Research Master in Archaeology is to provide you with the theoretical abilities and methodological skills which will enable you to become a successful researcher. You will develop a thorough understanding of key debates in archaeology, develop a critical attitude and acquire essential organizational, networking and teaching skills. Most importantly, you can tailor the programme to your needs and special interests. The Research Master in Archaeology has a broad geographical and chronological coverage – from the Arctic and North-western Europe to the Mediterranean and the Near East, from the Mesolithic to historical archaeology.
In addition, the programme will increase your chances in the job market: You can do an internship, or become research assistant; you will also be trained in writing peer-reviewed articles, grant applications and a PhD proposal.
In the first year, you will attend three compulsory courses, but
can choose two courses yourself.
In the second year, you will once more attend two compulsory courses, and one elective. You will complete the programme by writing a thesis on a topic of your choice.
