Continuing your studies
The master’s programme in Archaeology at Leiden University is the most diverse in the Netherlands. There are several regional and thematic focus areas and research is incorporated in the education programme. Join our international classroom: half of the students come from outside The Netherlands, as well as half of the teaching staff. All programmes are taught in English.
With a master's degree you will have completed a full academic education, and you will enter the job market with a maximum of theoretical understanding. Continuing your studies, therefore, is recommended. The only question is, what master's programme will you follow?

- MA Applied Archaeology
