Are you interested in becoming an Egyptologist? Would you like to dedicate your life to the study of Ancient Egypt, do fieldwork in the Nile valley or conduct other professional activities related to the ancient land of the Pharaohs?
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 (cultural tourism, publishing houses, cultural and heritage management, teaching, etc.).
The programme consists of 120 credits, distributed into seven modules offered over the span of two academic years. Three of these modules are dedicated to language studies, three contain historical and cultural contents and the seventh module corresponds to the Final Master Thesis. It also offers a wide range of mobility programmes (museums and academic institutions around the world and archaeological activities in Egypt). All lectures are offered in Spanish.
The master's degree in Egyptology prepares students to enter a variety of professional sectors, such as teaching (universities, private institutes, etc.), research into Egyptology, fieldwork (missions to Egypt), publishing activities (translation or editing of works in Egyptology), cultural tourism (specialised trips), museums and conservation of Egyptian heritage, cultural management, etc.
It is hard for me to adapt to the American learning system, but I am noticing that the preparation we receive in the master's degree is very, very good! José Rafael Saade
