The Interuniversity Master's degree in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution has three main areas:
- Research into human palaeoecology and prehistory, palaeoanthropology, geology and palaeoontology of the Quaternary.
- Archaeological intervention.
- Management, conservation and socialisation of archaeological heritage.
It shares objectives and educational activities with the degrees in History and Anthropology and Human Evolution through introductory subjects to a specialisation in archaeology.
It offers a specialised, career-oriented degree designed to prepare students for research in the field of Quaternary archaeology without neglecting the important demands of society and the labour market. It aims to train students to evaluate and draw up reports on archaeological interventions so that they can work as specialists in the field of archaeology or in the management of archaeological heritage.
Pre-registration for the academic year 2022-23 opens in February.
