Characteristics and objectives
The degree course provides advanced scientific, speculative, and operational methodological skills in the field of archeology and of pre-protohistoric, classical and medieval art, in addition to knowledge regarding ancient history and written sources.
The course develops skills in the cataloging, conservation, management, and enhancement of archeological, artistic, documentary, and monumental heritage with the addition of IT technology and telematic communication. Applications involve surveying monuments and archeological sites, the classification of archeological finds, the elaboration of images, and the IT management of scientific texts. Degree coursework entails theoretical training combined with hands-on experience (internships and laboratories) at archeological sites to consolidate previously acquired skills in the methodological context of stratigraphic archeological excavations, territorial surface reconnaissance, the use of graphic, photographic and topographic surveying instruments, and the IT processing of archeological data.

Occupational opportunities
The degree course trains archeologists qualified in the following contexts: in institutions (Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio, national museums, archeological parks, regional superintendence offices); in companies, cooperatives, and private groups that collaborate with the authorities tasked with protecting archeological heritage. Graduates are also specially equipped to act as consultants for the planning and management of archeological parks and sites; as teaching staff for state and civic museums; expert collaborators with research bodies involved with archeological heritage activities in public and private institutions, such as municipalities, provinces, regions, and foundations; as collaborators with publishers, journals, and other media specialized in the field of archeology.
