The course aims to provide advanced training in the field of Greek and Roman archeology. Training objective is the acquisition of a wide and qualified theoretical and practical knowledge of the latest research methodologies in the field of archeology of the classical world and high qualification in the field of the protection, conservation and enhancement of the archaeological heritage. Tools, objectives and methods of contemporary archaeological research will be acquired by the maturation of humanistic skills and techniques related to the ancient city of settlements in terms of programs, structural setting and infrastructure, architectural language, building techniques, street furniture. All of these skills will enable the achievement of a critical awareness of the ancient settlement, which you will be able to historicize the birth in relation to the construction and evolution of political, social and cultural systems of the classical world by recognizing the semantic and narrative tools .

The knowledge and learning skills acquired during the undergraduate program will be implemented through the delivery of specialized texts, including in foreign language, that will help develop and implement original ideas independently thanks to the possible participation in initiatives aimed at knowledge of new search paths and conscious mastery of the scientific debate on archaeological studies and disciplines applied to archeology. The student will be stressed, in this second level of study, a critical study of texts proposed for self-study and a more specialized methodological approach towards the issues under investigation. As part of the seminar discussions can be entrusted specific tasks, in which the student must demonstrate independent critical thinking and ability to solve new problems, to correctly apply the methods and tools of the latest research within the interdisciplinary framework that characterizes' teaching, being able to communicate in an appropriate manner their skills and the results of his research, using the technical language of their discipline, to be able to use the main computer programs and repertoires as documentation tool and vehicle of communication, to be able to master the methods of documentation ancient archaeological contexts, including through the reading of the main archaeological and written sources relating to them. It will also be able to read and understand scientific texts specialized in foreign languages, and to use an interactive computer tools as information channels, and in-depth study. The student will, therefore, deal with in a mature and independent study of specific topics in the field of archaeological disciplines, choosing learning strategies and study its potential and more appropriate to the chosen theme. It may, therefore, develop processing capabilities to enable it to continue, for the most part independently, studying archeology in a perspective linked, for example, a possible research activities or to further development of skills in the professional field research institutions and public and private institutions responsible for the protection and promotion of cultural heritage, namely universities, museums, archaeological superintendence, foundations, public and private institutions that govern the management of the landscape and managing excavation, archaeological teaching and museum exhibition.
