Track A involves the preparation of a research thesis and consists of 32 credits, including core courses, elective courses and field days. Supervision and personalized tutorials will be provided to students pursuing the thesis track. A thesis, which is normally completed in the year following the completion of coursework, is required for students advancing to doctoral studies in Israel. A thesis is an independent research project, and the pace of progress depends largely on the student’s efforts. Students who complete their thesis later than one semester after the completion of their coursework may be expected to pay an additional fee as detailed by the Graduate Studies Authority.
Track B consists of 36 Israeli credits (without a thesis) and includes core courses, elective courses, field days and a final written exam.
Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a Masters of Arts in Archaeology from the Faculty of Humanities and the Department of Archaeology.
