In the one-year Master's programme Landscape and Heritage you study the dynamic past of both contemporary and historical landscapes, and explore the ways in which they are preserved and maintained as archaeological heritage.
The Master’s programme Landscape and Heritage focuses on the significance of historical landscapes and materials in both later periods and the modern world. Natural landscape features, archaeological sites and objects from the past play an active role in the creation of social and collective memories. The programme draws close links between teaching and ongoing research, of which the application of GIS-based modelling is but one example. The programme has also forged strong ties with a number of archaeological institutions, such as the Allard Pierson.
The Master’s programme in Landscape and Heritage is one of three Archaeology programmes offered by the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA), a joint venture of the University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam – for the other programmes, see: Archaeology of Northwestern Europe and Mediterranean Archaeology. ACASA enables you to benefit from the expertise of two universities, and allows you to choose from a wide range of courses, interest fields, and specialisations.
Landscape and Heritage is an accredited degree programme of Archaeology. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master’s degree in Archaeology and the title Master of Arts (MA).
