MA in Maritime Civilizations
The program in Maritime Civilizations offers students the opportunity to explore the history and archaeology of maritime societies, as well as the natural environment in which they developed and the anthropogenic environments in which they currently exist.
Students examine a variety of fields including coastal and underwater archaeology, ancient ship construction, marine biology and ecology, maritime history, maritime geoarchaeology, and archaeozoology. Special emphasis is placed on harbors and seafaring as part of the Mediterranean’s maritime heritage. This program is based on ongoing, active research carried out in the field and laboratories at the Department of Maritime Civilizations and the Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies.
The one-year program is taught in English over three consecutive semesters, from October through September. Upon conclusion of the program, graduates will be awarded a Master of Arts in Maritime Civilizations.
