At the beginning of their studies, students follow a common syllabus for the first three semesters. Upon completion of their third semester, students elect to specialize in either History or Archaeology. Thus, the degrees offered by the Department are (a) Degree of the Department of History and Archaeology with specialization in History or (b) Degree of the Department of History and Archaeology with specialization in Archaeology.
Courses with numbers in the 100 range (100-level courses) are introductory courses. They are compulsory for the students of the Department; they are also open to students of other Departments of the University as electives.
Courses with numbers in the 200 range (200-level courses) have as prerequisites the corresponding 100-level courses. The students of the Department of History and Archaeology may choose from these in order to complete their programme of study. Students of other Departments may also take these courses as electives, provided they have already attended and passed the corresponding 100-level course (or are allowed to take the course by the instructor teaching it). The Department also organises 200-level, elective courses in practical archaeology and other related field activities.
The 300-level courses offered by the Department are seminars and have as prerequisites the equivalent 200-level courses. They are open to students of the Department after the successful completion of the fourth semester of their studies. The students will have to take three seminars in the specialization they have selected. The subjects of the seminars (300-level courses) offered by the Department are to be found at the University Timetable, available before the beginning of each semester.
