Geo- and Field Archaeology - Master's Degree


Short Description 

The master’s degree programme is aimed at imparting students with theoretical, methodological and practical skills in the fields of geoarchaeology and field archaeology. Throughout three terms of coursework, different disciplines are combined which bear equal reference to science, engineering and the humanities: archaeology on the one hand, especially field methods in excavation, prospection and documentation, and geosciences on the other hand, particularly geoecology and geographical information systems. The master’s degree programme in Geoarchaeology and Field Archaeology is offered in collaboration between the HTW Berlin and University of Potsdam. Graduates are capable of planning and carrying out the scientific analysis and documentation of archaeological find spots and ancient landscapes, assessing the significance of these testimonials to historical, social, economic and cultural development, and based on this, dealing with these monuments from the past in a highly qualified, responsible manner.
