The conduct of archaeological research varies widely from one country to another. Not only do the ancient sites differ, but each country (or geographic discipline) also presents fieldworkers and other researchers with its own cultural settings, standard practices, and official regulations.

Thus study of the practicalities of conducting archaeological research in Egypt and Sudan, and in Egyptological museum collections, merits its own concentrated study at the post-graduate level.

For this reason, the University of Arizona is pleased to offer this post-graduate program in Egyptian archaeology.

This program will aid participants in their careers by providing training and requiring demonstration of competence in the following core areas, among others:

  • archaeological field methods as used in Egypt and/or Sudan;
  • interpretation of material culture in the conditions encountered in Egypt and/or Sudan;
  • the preparation of research proposals, permit requests, and required reports;
  • the preparation of grant proposals for the conduct of archaeological research, especially fieldwork.

Courses include:

  • Topics of Egyptology
  • Art As Plunder: The Spoils of War, the Formation of Collections, & Trade in Stolen Art
  • Art and Architecture of the Islamic World
  • Archaeology of Africa
  • Principles of Archaeological Fieldwork
  • Mapping Ancient Cities
  • Ancient Egypt: Archeology and Language
  • Greek Pottery

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
