About

The innovative interdisciplinary two-year Heritage, Memory and Archaeology (Archaeology) programme of the University of Amsterdam explores the ways in which we deal with tangible and intangible remnants and narratives of the past, as well as the remaking of the past into heritage, memory and material culture in the present. 

Overview

A unique combination of scientific traditions

The Heritage, Memory and Archaeology (Archaeology) programme of the University of Amsterdam trains you to think critically about how human societies have dealt with the past in pre-modern times, as well as the diverse and conflicting ways in which the past is interpreted and put to use in the world today.

Whether you choose to specialise in ‘Heritage and Memory Studies’, or in ‘Archaeology and Material Culture’, this innovative programme offers a unique combination of scientific traditions and will give you a strong theoretical and conceptual foundation in Heritage and Memory Studies or Archaeology and Material Culture and the intersections between these fields.

A research-driven programme

The Research Master’s programme integrates all branches of research focusing on the material and intangible remains of the past, the reciprocal relations between objects and meanings, and the dynamics of memory, from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives. It provides a unique foundation for students planning to pursue a PhD degree or a career in heritage and memory studies, historical and archaeological preservation, policy and consultancy or management in non-governmental organisations and international enterprises.
