Our department in short


Centrally located on the humanities campus and next to the State and University Library (SUB) (site plan UFG), the department is located in the rear building of the Archaeological Institute. In close contact between students and lecturers, the department offers the possibility to study prehistoric and early historic archaeology as part of the bachelor's and master's degree program or as an elective in the course of study Ancient Cultures
(see info brochure). In addition to a comprehensive basic education covering the various epochs, subject areas, and sources, the professional focus of the department is on landscape, settlement, and economic archaeological issues. Thanks to numerous research projects at the department, students quickly gain an insight into the professional field and have the opportunity to do independent scientific work within the framework of the projects.
