The Masters Programme in "Archaeology" aims to provide an in-depth training in the specific area of ​​the "LM-2 - Archaeology" class. More specifically, its aim is to provide students with archaeological and historical skills, by adopting both traditional (historical and archaeological, philological and linguistic as well as artistic knowledge) and innovative teaching methods (through the acquisition and application of the most advanced methods in cultural knowledge). Graduates of the Masters Programme in "Archaeology" are prospective researchers with thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of archaeological disciplines within both European and Afro-Asian contexts. The aim of the course is to train professionals at a managerial level who:
  • CAN collaborate and integrate themselves in public and private institutions  that are responsible for the protection and management of national and international archaeological and cultural heritage;
  • CAN join the Local Authorities in charge of the management and enhancement of cultural heritage;
  • CAN take over international cooperation projects and programs for the promotion of the archaeological heritage of non-European countries and the enhancement of cultural resources also for tourism purposes.

About University

The Department of Classics was
created in 2010, bringing together archaeological, historical, philological,
literary, epigraphic and linguistic disciplines related to antiquity, which had
previously been hosted in a range of different departments. As a result of
this, the department both promotes and supports constant interaction between
the disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches to antiquity.

With some 70 faculty
members, we are one of the largest and most preeminent institutions in the
field. We carry out research in all disciplines related to the ancient world,
from the Prehistory to the Middle Ages, in Europe, Africa and in the Near and
Middle East.

The Department is organised
into three Sections: Archaeology, Greek and Latin Philology and History,
Epigraphy and Topography (East and Ancient Mediterranean). It also boasts
eight laboratories, a rich research library, with more than 150,000 volumes,
divided into four main thematic areas (Archaeology, Classical and Byzantine
Philology, Prehistoric Archaeology, Ancient History and Topography), and four
museums (Museo dell’Arte Classica, Museo delle Origini, Museo del Vicino
Oriente, Museo delle Antichità Etrusche e Italiche), which form part of the
Polo Museale Sapienza.

The Department offers:


  • two BA courses in
    Italian: Archaeological Science and Classics;

    Italian: Archaeology; Philology, Literature and History of the Ancient
    World;
