3. The Methodological Focus: Theory and Education in Contact with the Historical Material


One of the main focuses is on detailed analysis of archaeological objects, which – already in the BA program, but, above all, then in the MA program – is combined with methodologically and theoretically grounded reflection on archaeological-historical issues.

The distinctive profile of the Classical Archaeology program at CAU Kiel is also stamped by the Antiquities Collection, which is under the direction of the department and is housed in the Kiel Kunsthalle. Thanks to the original artifacts and plaster casts in the collection, right from the first semester, students learn how to deal directly with ancient objects in a scientific way.
