Archaeologies

In the Archaeologies degree program, legacies of past cultures are put into historical and cultural-historical context. The program is divided into the following subfields: Classical archaeology, prehistoric and early-historic archaeology, Christian archaeology and Egyptology.

Classical archaeology explores the ancient Mediterranean region with a focus on ancient Greek and Roman culture. Prehistoric and early-historic archaeology focuses on the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age up until the cultural development of Europe in the first millennium A.D. Christian archaeology addresses archaeological relics from late antiquity and the early Byzantine Age. Egyptology focuses on all areas of late Egyptian high culture, including language and script as well as religion and culture.

Students majoring in Archeologies have the opportunity to study three of the four aforementioned subfields with individually varying degrees of intensity and depth. In addition to academic training, this program strongly emphasizes practical experience. Students have the opportunity to participate in field trips, guided work on originals and internships. The archaeology department has two museums: The Academic Art Museum (Akademisches Kunstmuseum) and the Egyptian Museum (Ägyptisches Museum)

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.
