Official master in Egyptology - UAB

The objective of the UAB master's degree in Egyptology is to train professional Egyptologists, i.e. provide students with the contents and competences to allow them to become professionals in the academic and research sector (continuing on to a PhD programme), as well as in the museum sector, in Egyptian fieldwork and in other professional fields. The master's degree offers Catalan, Spanish, Latin American and other Spanish-speaking university students an official specialised programme in Egyptology adapted to their specific academic, cultural and language needs. This allows students to carry out their studies in Egyptology in their own specific academic environment.

This master's degree is oriented towards research and includes 120 credits distributed into seven modules and two academic years. Students will enrol in four the first year and three modules the second year. Six of these modules are classroom-based and are worth 15 credits each; Three of them focus on language and the other three on historical and cultural themes. The seventh module is the Master Thesis, worth 30 credits. All modules and training activities are core and compulsory modules. Students can apply for this master's degree every two years. To facilitate learning for Spanish-speaking students from around the world, the master's degree is offered fully in Spanish. Once students complete the course, they will receive an official master's degree diploma in Egyptology from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
