In process of extinction

The master's degree in Prehistory, Antiquity and the Middle Ages is aimed primarily at graduates in Archaeology, History, Art History, Classical Studies, Anthropology, Biology and Geology. It is divided into two specialisations: Prehistoric Archaeology and Antiquity and the Middle Ages.
The specialisation in Prehistoric Archaeology will provide students with a greater amount of training in digital resources available to archaeology and the possibility to master the use of highly specialised techniques. The specialisation in Antiquity and the Middle Ages reinforces the handling of original written and archeaological documents, with particular focus on the research line dedicated to conflicts and conquests.

In addition, a work placement module has also been incorporated and the Master's Dissertation module is now worth more credits.
