Postgraduate studies in archaeology are aimed at the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). A key part of the degree is a doctoral thesis, which the students must defend in a public presentation. The degree also includes 20–50 credits of other studies. A separate agreement will be made concerning the scope of research. The degree of Licentiate of Philosophy (PhL) is not mandatory.
Before applying as a postgraduate student, you should discuss your research subject with a professor in the field to see whether the university has sufficient expertise to assist you in pursuing your planned research subject. Ongoing research projects focus on research for doctoral theses and instructing future PhDs.
