Archaeology Master's programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The master’s programme Archaeology (Classical and Roman Provincial Archaeology) extends, deepens and specialises students’ knowledge of cultural artifacts of Greek and Roman civilisations including territories and cultures under the influence of the Roman Empire. Archaeological research aims to discover modes of life and behaviour of ancient cultures, which involves identifying, discovering, documenting, classifying, reconstructing, comparing and interpreting material findings (archaeological sources). The sources which are uncovered in the course of archaelogical fieldwork are of utmost importance. These findings are published and thus made accessible. This is why both written and oral presentations of scientific results are crucial and are therefore also fostered in the Archaeology master’s programme. For this reason, the master’s thesis has to comply with scientific standards. This thesis requires a certain specialisation representing an important step within today’s scientific community.

Expected results

Students of this master’s programme of Archaeology will have increased their knowledge of archaeological research methods. They will have acquired subject-related knowledge and be able to formulate and defend their findings scientifically. They will be able to conduct archaelogical digs independently and also carry out work such as the documentation and evaluation of findings. Graduates will be able to work on complex and innovative research issues and justify their findings in a scientific and interdisciplinary manner while at the same time solving any related problems.
