Archaeology - Master's Programme

The language of instruction in this programme is Norwegian. Read more about the programme on the Norwegian website

The master's programme in Archaeology aims to provide the students with extensive knowledge of the theory, method and administration practice of the field, as well as its dissemination and research. This will form the students' basis for further research on and administration of cultural history.

An archaeologist is supposed to be able to establish and complete a scholarly project. The research community emphasises on the position and function of archaeology in society, as well as the foundation for evaluating the preservation and dissemination of cultural monuments.

Students may choose their specialization within the field of historical archaeology, technological archaeology, Southern Sami archaeology, or other specialization prepared in consultation with the assigned tutor.
