Admission Official Master's Degree in Egyptology


Access to this master's degree is open to holders of an official bachelor's degree from a Spanish university or from another higher education institution within or outside the European Higher Education Area, provided this gives access to postgraduate studies in the country of issue.

Admission requirements

A degree or equivalent in any academic discipline. As there is no degree in Egyptology, no previous knowledge is required. Additionally, as Egyptology is of interest to a broad range of studies and areas of specialisation, and given that this master’s degree provides an introduction to Egyptology from its origins, it has been thought advisable not to limit access to any specific ambit.
