Are you interested in the sea as a cultural and historical resource? Fascinated by shipwrecks and submerged settlements? The new postgraduate programme in Maritime Archaeology is designed for students who are interested in a professional career in maritime archaeology and heritage management. Based in Esbjerg on the Danish North Sea coast, the programme is internationally oriented and all teaching is in English.
The two-year masters programme was created with employability in mind. Our aim is not just to provide an education in maritime archaeology, but to prepare you for a career in this field. The course is structured around skills which are necessary in the fields of heritage management, consultancy and archaeological contract work, but also benefit students who want to follow a more traditional research oriented career path.
In addition to covering the theory and practice of maritime archaeology, the programme offers training in project management, law and economics.
A strong focus is put on the acquistion of practical skills ranging from the preparation of environmental impact assessments to underwater survey and excavation. Field schools in Denmark and other European countries are an integral part of the programme.
