About this Study Course

Discover the mysteries of ancient civilizations and uncover the legacies of past cultures with our Bachelor of Arts in Archaeologies program. Rooted in historical and cultural context, this interdisciplinary degree offers a comprehensive exploration of four distinct subfields: Classical archaeology, prehistoric and early-historic archaeology, Christian archaeology, and Egyptology.

Overview

Classical archaeology immerses students in the ancient Mediterranean region, shedding light on the rich tapestry of ancient Greek and Roman culture. Prehistoric and early-historic archaeology delves into the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age, illuminating the cultural development of Europe up to the first millennium A.D. Christian archaeology focuses on relics from late antiquity and the early Byzantine Age, while Egyptology unveils the intricacies of late Egyptian high culture, encompassing language, script, religion, and culture.

In our dual-subject model, students can choose Archaeologies as one of their subjects, selecting from one of the above-mentioned subfields. Beyond academic training, our program emphasizes practical experience, offering opportunities for field trips, hands-on work with original artifacts, and internships. Students also benefit from access to our archaeology department’s two museums—the Academic Art Museum and the Egyptian Museum—where they can engage directly with historical artifacts and deepen their understanding of museum curation and management.
