From September 2012 onwards, the VU University Amsterdam (VU) and the University of Amsterdam (UvA) offer a joint Master’s in Archaeology via the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). This pooling of resources means you will have the choice between various course packages, as well as the opportunity to specifically prepare yourself for a professional career, be it in commercial archaeology, policy archaeology or academic research. You will attend lectures at both the UvA and the VU.
The Master’s curriculum of Archaeology consists of three programmes. Each of these has its own core courses; on top of that you can choose from a wide variety of other courses offered by ACASA. Together this helps you to design a curriculum that corresponds to what you think is best for an internationally oriented career.
All courses are taught in English.
