The Study Programme, that has a two-year duration and is provided in two curricula (in Italian and in English), aims to train experts in the field of cultural heritage conservation and archaeometry. They will be able to analyse conservation problems and to detect deterioration processes thanks to their knowledge of the physical, chemical and structural properties of materials, as well as to identify any possible remedies. The multidisciplinary nature of the cultural heritage field calls for a variety of programmes which allows to meet the scientific and professional requirements of such field and provides at the same time a group of courses to complete the humanities education and to offer specialisation in general disciplines. Training is completed by means of internships at university scientific labs or at public and private bodies of the field.

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;

• two MA courses in Italian: Archaeology; Philology, Literature and History of the Ancient World;

• one BA course in English: Classics;

• one MA course in English: Classical Archaeology (distance learning course, in collaboration with Unitelma Sapienza);

• two PhD courses: in Archaeology and in Philology and History of the ancient world;

• the School of Specialization in Archaeology;

• Master of Architecture for Archaeology (in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture).
