New Underwater and Nautical Archaeology Program at the University of Cadiz

The University of Cadiz has established a comprehensive programme with graduate, Masters and PhD degrees focused exclusively on nautical and underwater archeology. It is the first time that a university offers a cross-specialized education programme -in Spanish- for the research, preservation and protection of the underwater cultural heritage, in line with the principles of safeguarding, capacity-building and researching advocated by UNESCO in its 2001 Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.
