There are several archaeology research groups that include both degree programme students and graduate students. Students interested in research are encouraged to join a research group already during their Bachelor’s degree studies, which is why several Bachelor’s and Master’s theses have been completed in research projects. After completing their Master’s degree, the graduates can continue in the research group while working on their doctorates. Archaeology students are encouraged to join the research community already at the degree programme stage so that starting a career in research would be as easy as possible. For more information on researcher training and research, please see the website of the Faculty of Humanities and the website of the University of Oulu Graduate School. For more information and advice, please contact professor Vesa-Pekka Herva or lecturer Timo Ylimaunu.
