Unlock the secrets of the past in the only discipline that looks at the human journey as a whole.
If you're looking to pursue a rewarding career in the field of archaeology, La Trobe's Master of Archaeology will prepare you for a career as a professional archaeologist, heritage manager or researcher.
After graduation, you could work in specialist fields such as professional archaeology, cultural heritage management or research. The State of Victoria has robust laws protecting our heritage and, combined with continued government investment in infrastructure, there's very strong demand for archaeologists.
