Descrição do Programa

Research MA in Heritage, Memory and Archaeology

University of Amsterdam

The innovative interdisciplinary two-year Research Master's programme Heritage, Memory Studies and Archaeology explores the ways in which we deal with tangible and intangible remnants and narratives of the past, as well as the remaking of the past into heritage, memory and material culture in the present.

A unique combination of scientific traditions

The two-year Research Master's programme in Heritage, Memory and Archaeology trains you to think critically about how human societies have dealt with the past in pre-modern times, as well as the diverse and conflicting ways in which the past is interpreted and put to use in the world today.

Whether you choose to specialise in ‘Heritage and Memory Studies’, or in ‘Archaeology and Material Culture’, this innovative programme offers a unique combination of scientific traditions and will give you a strong theoretical and conceptual foundation in Heritage and Memory Studies or Archaeology and Material Culture and the intersections between these fields.

A research-driven programme

The Research Master’s programme integrates all branches of research focusing on the material and intangible remains of the past, the reciprocal relations between objects and meanings, and the dynamics of memory, from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives. It provides a unique foundation for students planning to pursue a PhD degree or a career in heritage and memory studies, historical and archaeological preservation, policy and consultancy or management in non-governmental organisations and international enterprises.

Programme overview

The two-year Research Master's programme Heritage, Memory Studies and Archaeology offers a unique opportunity to combine processes that shape the collective memory and determine how society deals with tangible and intangible remnants of the past. The programme provides in-depth training in the theory and practice of heritage and memory studies, and archaeology.

The programme offers two specialisation tracks: ‘Heritage & Memory Studies’ and ‘Archaeology’. Both specialisations give access to a wide range of courses offered across the Faculty of Humanities, while individual research tutorials enable you to explore your own interests in the fields of Heritage and Memory Studies and Archaeology and Material Culture.

Research Master's specialisations

  • ‘Heritage & Memory Studies’ offers the understanding of long- and short-term processes that shape the collective memory, and examines the individuals and groups involved in heritage as an industry and as a contemporary narration of history.
  • ‘Archaeology and Material Culture’ offers training in the theory and practice of historical and contemporary archaeology. You have the flexibility to choose from a variety of courses, ranging from the archaeology of ancient civilisations to the archaeology of the modern world. Participation in archaeological fieldwork is a key component of the Archaeology and Material Culture specialisation.
