Archaeology

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Archaeology is the study of the culture and history of past civilizations through the structures and artifacts left behind, such as physical remains, artwork, tools and religious items. A particular period of time, a region of the world or a specific type of society will often be the student's focus.

The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean.
