Program description

The two year academic oriented research programme provides you with enough opportunities to specialise in the archaeological component which fascinates you the most.

You'll have plenty of freedom to determine your own study path within the Research Master's programme Archaeology. However, a strong interest in academic research is essential. Would you like to further broaden your knowledge of archaeology and, for instance, learn more about the meaning of temples in the Ancient World? Or would you like to examine the development of cities in North Western Europe since the late Roman period? The two year Research Master's in Archaeology will give you every opportunity to do so. As a student of this Research MA programme, you can choose between the specialisations European Archaeology and Mediterranean Archaeology. ACASA As of September 2012, the Master's programmes Archaeology, and Classics and Ancient Civilisations will be jointly provided by the University of Amsterdam and the VU University Amsterdam via the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). The Research Master's programme Archaeology forms part of this joint effort. By pooling their resources in ACASA, the two Amsterdam-based universities can offer the broadest package of Master's programmes in the field of archaeology and classical antiquity in the Netherlands.
