Teaching goals

The PhD programme in Archaeology and Art History aims to train high-profile archaeologists and art historians in an international academic environment. Through courses and activities organised over a three-year period, the educational programme will promote a cross-fertilization of ideas beyond conventional boundaries of academic research, combining in-depth subject specialism with interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary breadth.

This programme will lead students to develop cutting-edge methodology, updated to pathbreaking research models. Students will acquire knowledge and skills in their specific field as well as theoretical and practical ability to interact with other cultural approaches. The required strong capacity for critical analysis, discussion, written and oral expression, will prepare highly qualified researchers and professionals able to offer a genuine contribution within the framework of material and immaterial cultural heritage. The students will become familiar with ethical issues in current archaeological and art historical practices. Students will be encouraged to spend part of their study abroad.
