Archaeology

A master's degree is an opportunity for college graduates to specialize in a field of study. Completing the degree often involves taking a number of required courses and undertaking an individual research project.

What is a Master in Archaeology? Archaeology is the mapping of human history through the study of physical artifacts. Master's degree students in this field have quite a bit to learn, including excavation techniques. Before participating at an excavation worksite, students must hone the technical worksite skills that will allow them to carefully uncover and properly preserve artifacts. The program curriculum can also involve courses in human history, anthropology and art history. Those students who are looking to focus their careers on a given geographic area may also need to take regional studies classes.

The clearest benefit to this path of study is the opportunity it grants students to uncover history. Archaeology can be very rewarding work, particularly when it comes to excavating and interpreting ancient artifacts. The coursework of these programs often allows students a fair amount of field research time, which gives them a sense for this perk of the discipline.

In terms of the expense to obtain a master's degree in archaeology, schools generally vary in terms of cost. If you would like to inquire about a program's tuition and enrollment fees, contact the admissions office directly.

A Master in Archaeology prepares students for rewarding work in the joint fields of archaeology and history. Apart from working as archaeologists, graduates can go on to pursue careers as research historians, professors and museum managers. These are intellectually stimulating and engaging professions that require a high level of expertise, and a Master in Archaeology provides the ideal foundation for these careers.

Disciplinary because the programme builds on the specializations offered in your Bachelor’s programme; interdisciplinary because you make use of the results of related disciplines during the so-called ‘core modules’ . These are two interdisciplinary tutorials, in which members of the teaching staff from various disciplines from the department of Ancient Studies and Archaeology teach you how to approach a shared research theme from different perspectives and to provide theoretical underpinning for this theme.Opting for the research Master’s programme will bring you into an inspiring research environment. The department of Ancient Studies and Archaeology has been extremely successful of recent years in creating research opportunities for doctoral and postdoctoral research students, including large thematic projects which have room for a number of doctoral and postdoctoral research students....

The two specialisations in this programme are Late Iron Age and Roman archaeology of North Western Europe and Medieval and Early Modern archaeology.Vrije Universieit Amsterdam has a leading position in research and teaching in the field of late prehistory and the Roman era in Western Europe, with special reference to Dutch archaeology, while archaeology of the Middle Ages and the early modern period is one of the  specialisms at the University of Amsterdam. The two universities together thus cover 3000 years of Western European archaeology. This programme devotes considerable attention to settlement archaeology, the archaeology of sanctuaries and burial sites, integration processes in the Roman Empire and studies of city centres and material culture. There are close links between the teaching in all these areas and the results of recent fieldwork and other ongoing research, from Roman villa landscapes in the southern Netherlands to the shipyards of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) in the heart of Amsterdam....

Master in Ancient studies

 

The Master’s programme Ancient Studies does not adhere to disciplinary boundaries. There is almost not a single question which can be answered solely from an archaeological or literary vantage point. At Ancient Studies you learn to use that which is necessary, be it Ancient History, Archaeology, Ancient Languages or Philosophy. An ideal situation if you consider yourself both an historian and archaeologist, and want to view literature as a product of society.Questions you come across are, for example: Rome was an ethnic melting pot during imperial times. How did classical poets react to this, and can traces of this ethnic intermingling be found in studies of living conditions and artistic expressions? There are a lot of texts about dreams originating from the classical world (from Mesopotamia to Rome and Byzantium). Can we learn more about the people of antiquity by studying these dreams? And what is the influence of Latin literature on Dutch literature? Or: For once don’t compare Homer with Virgil, but with the Gilgamesh epic.Core moduleThe core module of this degree programme is "Great Debates in Ancient Historical Studies". In this module, lecturers from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam deal with a number of key themes from the field of Ancient studies that have been the subject of heated debates. You will write a paper on one of these debates. Depending on your background, you will specialize further in Ancient history and Archaeology, Latin language and culture, Greek language and culture or Mesopotamian language and culture of the first millennium B.C....
