The track in Archaeology offers profiles in NW-European Pre- and Protohistory, Classical and Mediterranean archaeology, Ecological archaeology and Arctic Studies.
In each profile archaeological theory and practice is combined with in-depth courses on, for example, wetland archaeology, maritime archaeology, settlement and landscape archaeology including GIS, funerary archaeology, ecological archaeology or arctic studies. Students can develop specific topics of their own interest within these broad fields, or may choose to participate in the department's ample research programme that builds on a long and internationally renowned tradition of multidisciplinary approaches, combining archaeology, anthropological and science-based disciplines. Students participate in the courses on offer by the National Research School Archon and the Department's research seminars and capita selecta. Study abroad is encouraged and participation in fieldwork projects or work in the various laboratories at the department or elsewhere is facilitated.
