Leiden University offers the most extensive Master's programme in archaeology in the Netherlands. A strong emphasis is placed on field archaeology, with an additional focus on ecology and geology.
The one-year programme is directly linked to ongoing research. The faculty staff are involved in archaeological projects around the world, which ensures you will have access to in-depth knowledge of specific culture areas. This is combined with ongoing debates in general theory, the development of new methods and the advancement of the use of information technology within the discipline. There is a focus on field archaeology, ecology and geology, which is combined with iconological and historical studies as well as with ethno-archaeological, anthropological and experimental approaches.
Graduates will be able, taking a given research question as their starting point, to collect the relevant archaeological source material & to interpret that material in the framework of the research question, if necessary in association with different source material.
