The degree in Archaeology and Classics combines the theoretical and the practical. In this major students learn about all aspects of ancient Mediterranean civilizations. Stewardship of our heritage is a major concern of modern archaeology and our program recognizes this through a component in Cultural Heritage Management.
All students have the possibility to participate in practical archaeological fieldwork through excavations. For those who prefer written texts there is a comprehensive program of courses in ancient languages, history and literature.
Recognizing the growing importance of popular history and archaeology the program has recently expanded program offerings to include courses in film and media for students contemplating this career path.
