Overview

This articulated program aims to meet the research and professional needs of graduates with an interest in Australian archaeology, archaeological field practice and cultural heritage consultancy. It aims to increase your theoretical knowledge, research skills and applied skills to help you develop the appropriate depth of understanding of issues in a number of related specialisations in archaeology and/or cultural heritage management.

The program draws on both theoretical and practical material and provides you with the opportunity to apply both the principles and the practical skills developed during the course.

You can choose from a range of archaeology topics, including topics in heritage management, maritime archaeology, rock art, field methods, historical archaeology, indigenous archaeology and forensic archaeology. You may also choose topics from a number of related disciplines.

In addition, the Master of Archaeology and Heritage Management provides you with the opportunity to complete a substantial research project (thesis). Upon graduating from the Masters degree, you will be equipped to conduct industry-based archaeological or heritage management research and consultancy.
