Archäologien [Archeologies] (Bachelor of Arts, Double Major)

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)

Possible lines of work:

Academia (research management, teaching/research at universities, research institutes, etc.), offices for the preservation of historical monuments, exhibitions/museums (curator, guide, logistics), insurance (e.g. providing expert opinion), tourism (cultural tour guide, program development), cultural field (event organization/management, cultural institutions, etc.), journalism (editor at news agencies, publishers, radio, television, etc.), public relations (e.g. in museums, cultural associations, companies)
