GRADUATE CERTIFICATE / GRADUATE DIPLOMA / MASTER APPLIED MARITIME ARCHAEOLOGY
(UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND WESTERN AUSTRALIAN MUSEUM)
These postgraduate degrees are taught every 2 to 3 years in Perth, Australia. The program aims to provide the specialist practical skills and knowledge in maritime archaeology, or to lead students to higher-degree research in the field of maritime archaeology. The courses are taught by expert archaeologists and museum staff (maritime archaeologists, conservators, conservation scientists, museum curators, historians, boat builders) at both the University of Western Australia and the Western Australian Museum as well as industry experts in geophysics, remote sensing, and marine studies. Our focus is very much 'hands-on' as well as providing a supportive and stimulating academic environment. Enrolments are limited (next program starts in Semester 1, 2011*).
Applicants are normally expected to possess a bachelor's degree in archaeology or a related discipline. If applicants are to dive then qualifications are required.
The Certificate of Applied Maritime Archaeology is offered in an intensive teaching program over c. 8 weeks (depending on weather conditions) and requires the completion of four units.
The Diploma of Applied Maritime Archaeology requires completion of a further four units for a total of eight units.
