About us

This is the blog and news page of the Maritime Archaeology Programme at the University of Southern Denmark. Here we’ll keep you up to date about our projects, fieldschools and everything else that’s going on. You can also find links to our publications, videos and photographs.

Who are we?

The new postgraduate programme in Maritime Archaeology is designed for students who are interested in a professional career in maritime archaeology and heritage management. Based in Esbjerg on the Danish North Sea coast, the programme is internationally oriented and all teaching is in English.

A two-year masters programme

The two-year masters programme was created with employability in mind. Our aim is not just to provide an education in maritime archaeology, but to prepare you for a career in this field. The course is structured around skills which are necessary in the fields of heritage management, consultancy and archaeological contract work, but also benefit students who want to follow a more traditional research oriented career path.

Commercial diver training

At the University of Southern Denmark students have the opportunity to obtain an internationally recognised commercial SCUBA diving qualification at very low cost. As an approved commercial diving school, the masters programme can issue the Danish “SCUBA erhvervsdykker” certificate (equivalent to HSE SCUBA).

Interested?

As education is free in Denmark, the maritime archaeology masters course is free of charge for students from European Union/EEA countries. Only students from outside the EU/EEA are charged an annual tuition fee.
