Archaeologists explore the past through the material world. From uncovering our recent past beneath our cities, to delving deeper into ancient societies, archaeology shines a light on where we have been, who we were and the factors that shaped our present society. Unlock the secrets of the past in the only discipline that looks at the human journey as a whole.

If you're looking to pursue a rewarding career in the field of archaeology, La Trobe's Master of Archaeology will prepare you for a career as a professional archaeologist, heritage manager or researcher.

You'll develop specialist skills in contemporary archaeological practice and acquire comprehensive knowledge of Australian and Australian Indigenous archaeology.

You'll learn from renowned researchers in La Trobe's world-class facilities and benefit from both a hands-on and academic perspective.

For students interested in a global career in archaeology, the Master of Archaeology can be tailored to meet your needs. Develop strong field skills applicable anywhere in the world while undertaking specialist research into your preferred region and time period.

Choose from a wide range of subjects and undertake specialist studies in heritage planning, community consultation, field techniques, analysis of human and animal bone, site identification and recording using digital technologies.
