The conduct of archaeological research varies widely from one country to another. Not only do the ancient sites differ, but each country (or geographic discipline) also presents fieldworkers and other researchers with its own cultural settings, standard practices, and official regulations. 

Thus study of the practicalities of conducting archaeological research in Egypt and Sudan, and in Egyptological museum collections, merits its own concentrated study at the post-graduate level. 

For this reason, the University of Arizona is pleased to offer this post-graduate program in Egyptian archaeology.

This  Egyptian Archaeology (Certificate NDP) from University of Arizona will aid participants in their careers by providing training and requiring demonstration of competence in the following core areas, among others:

  • archaeological field methods as used in Egypt and/or Sudan;
  • interpretation of material culture in the conditions encountered in Egypt and/or Sudan;
  • the preparation of research proposals, permit requests, and required reports;
  • the preparation of grant proposals for the conduct of archaeological research, especially fieldwork.
