Specialisations

The Master’s Programme in Archaeology at Leiden University is the most diverse in the Netherlands. There are several regional and thematic specialisations and the education programme is directly linked to ongoing research. The faculty staff are involved in projects all over the world, with a strong emphasis on field archaeology. There is an additional focus on ecology and geology, which is combined with iconological and historical studies, as well as with ethno-archaeological, anthropological and experimental approaches.

In-depth knowledge of a specific cultural area is combined with ongoing debates in general theory, the development of new methods and the advancement of the use of information technology in the discipline.
