Programme of BA studies

The study programme is designed to give students the best training in the archaeological profession and to provide them with knowledge and skills helpful for a good start in other fields. Our programme encompasses a wide variety of subjects, including general humanities courses as well as science-oriented courses, such as Techniques of Data Acquisition and Processing – important assets on the modern job market.

The study programme places an emphasis on Mediterranean Archaeology and provides the students with background knowledge and practical skills enabling them to take part in archaeological expeditions and explorations all over the world. Excavation training is obligatory during the course of studies, and the Institute of Archaeology offers numerous sites for students to choose from.
