Archaeological Sciences

Students of the Archaeological Sciences degree program can choose between four specialties: Classical Archaeology, Christian Archaeology, Pre- and Early Historic Archaeology as well as Egyptology. Each specialty focuses on deepening relevant archaeological knowledge through conventional course formats as well as practical elements, such as field trips or practical courses, in a research-oriented way. In addition to their primary specialty, students choose a secondary archaeological specialty to complement their profile. Alternatively, students may design their study program according to their individual interests by freely combining courses from the above-mentioned specialties as well as from Islamic Archaeology, Anthropology of the Americas, Ancient History, Medieval History, Art History and Museum Studies.

This allows students to increase their knowledge of essential monuments and continuously develop their analytical and research skills using interdisciplinary approaches and methods, enabling them to conduct independent research and take a critical stance in expert discussions.

Possible lines of work:

Historic preservation authorities, culture (event management), museums (curator, tours, logistics), insurance (e.g. verification activities), tourism (study tour guide, program development), public relations (e.g. in museums, cultural institutions/associations, private businesses), academia (research management, teaching/research at universities or research institutions), journalism/editing, publishing

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
