STUDY MARITIME ARCHAEOLOGY IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
GRADUATE CERTIFICATE / GRADUATE DIPLOMA / MASTERS APPLIED MARITIME ARCHAEOLOGY
(BY THE UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN MUSEUM)
These postgraduate degrees are taught every 2 to 3 years in Perth, Australia. The program aims to provide the specialist practical skills and knowledge in maritime archaeology, or to lead students to higher-degree research in the field of maritime archaeology. The courses are taught by expert archaeologists and museum staff (maritime archaeologists, conservators, museum curators, historians, boat builders) at both the University of Western Australia and the Western Australian Museum as well as industry experts in geophysics, remote sensing, and marine studies. Our focus is very much ‘hands–on’ as well as providing a supportive and stimulating academic environment. Enrolments are limited.
Applicants are normally expected to possess a bachelor’s degree in archaeology or a related discipline. If applicants are to dive then qualifications are required.
