Apply: MA in Greek and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology (September 2017—October 2018: National and Kapodistrian University, Greece)

Apply for a new, innovative one-year  Master’s Program in Greek and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology taught at English in Greece’s oldest university, focussing on the advanced study of the archaeology of Greece, the wider area of the Aegean, Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean, including Mesopotamia.

Running: September 2017 to October 2018
Fees: 5000 Euros, inclusive of all tuition, on-site instruction, museum visits and fieldtrips. A number of scholarships, up to the full tuition costs, may be available each year. Application deadline: Applications are accepted between January 1st and May 31st 2017.

The program offers an in-depth, systematic account of the evidence, the methodologies, and the current debates on Greek and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology. Themes of interest range from the emergence of the Minoan and Mycenaean palaces and the great empires of the eastern Mediterranean, such as the Hittites and the Assyrians, to the formation and decline of the Greek city-state or the polis, the rise of Alexander the Great, the world of the East Mediterranean during the time of his successors, including the perception and importance of Greek and Eastern Mediterranean heritage today. The program consists of three core and three optional modules out of a wide range of available electives. Each module is assessed by a 3500-5000 words essay.

On-site instruction:
All modules include day trips to archaeological sites and museums within Athens and its environs; besides these, students are expected to participate in a series of longer fieldtrips around Greece, including the Peloponnese, Central Greece and Macedonia, as well as the islands of Santorini, Naxos, and Crete. During Spring semester, students are welcome to attend, on a voluntary basis and subject to their academic schedule, the Departmental Archaeological Excavation in Marathon (mid-April to late-May).

Who may apply:
The program aims to provide its students with the systematic knowledge, critical thinking, and communication skills required to assess the archaeological record as professional researchers or specialists. While ideal for archaeology graduates, this program is also suitable for those with a degree in the humanities, classics and other related subjects, who wish to prepare for doctoral research, to pursue a career in commercial archaeology, the museum sector, or the heritage industry at large. Graduates with no background knowledge but with strong motivation to acquire an overview of the wider issues that are related to the archaeology of Greece and Eastern Mediterranean archaeology are welcome, too.
