What will you learn?

The aim of doctoral studies in the field of archaeology is to lead the students to independent and original scientific research in archaeology on an international level. The study is designed so that the students can apply and enhance their theoretical and methodological knowledge in a creative way. Focus is laid especially on own research work conducted under the supervision of a doctoral adviser, and on regular methodological seminars where topics and methods are discussed in a wider professional collective. The tuition also comprises regular lectures by foreign experts. A matter of course is regular presentation in research community and publication of partial results of research work. As a part of their professional training, doctoral students participate in teaching and research projects of their home department. Students are recommended to complete a research fellowship abroad. Doctoral studies in the field of archaeology cover all specialisations within this discipline. The Masaryk University has a competent team of doctoral supervisors and offers to doctoral students impulses and background for their research career on an international level.

Practical training

Doctoral studies are designed as professional training for academic practice. The subjects of doctoral studies are focused on self-contained elaboration of scholarly papers for conferences and publications, professional discussion, and the structure of subjects also stimulates practical training within the scope of international cooperation. Full-time students in their practice participate in teaching and research projects of the Department.
