38 Masters Programs in 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.
