Overview

Through instruction of an archeological, historical-artistic and cultural nature, the degree programme provides solid preparation on the principal ancient cultures that have succeeded one another in the Mediterranean and Europe, from pre-historical times to the Medieval Ages. The degree course also conveys the main methodological profiles of modern archeological science. It fosters learning in specialized subjects in the fields of chemistry, physics, and geology; all applied to an understanding of archeological materials and contexts.
Theoretical knowledge is then integrated with a course component that involves practical lessons (work experience) on archeological sites. These activities aim at the acquisition of methods of stratigraphic archeological excavation, surface recognition, geophysical prospecting, and the use of graphic, photographic, and topographical survey instrumentation and data processing.
The degree course also includes the study of legislation concerning cultural heritage, a command of at least one of the modern languages of the European Union, and the understanding of the primary IT instruments applied to the research, protection, and enhancement of cultural heritage sites, in particular of archeological heritage.
