Ústav archeologie a muzeologie Fakulty filozofie Masarykovy univerzity, Brno / Department of Archaeology -Philosophical Fculty of the Masaryk University, Brno
The Institute was founded in 1930 as the Institute of Prehistory and Protohistory. The Department of Archaeology at the Institute is comprised of seven staff offices, a lecture room containing the school archaeological collection, a library of about 18,000 volumes, a reading room, and a ceramic laboratory with a depository. Two complete field-research base camps, at Těšetice-Kyjovice near Znojmo and Pojhansko near Břeclav, also belong to the Institute. The libraries, collections and other facilities of the Archaeological Institute of the Moravian Museum, the Archaeological Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Archaeological Conservation, and the Monument Care Institute, all in Brno, as well as the resources of the State Institute for Monument Care in Prague are available to students and members of our Institute. In addition, the Institute cooperates with a number of foreign universities and archaeological centres, and in the context of an interdisciplinary approach the Institute also cooperates with a number of Institutes of related interests. The study of Archaeology focuses on the Prehistory and Early Mediaeval history of Europe, and mainly on Central Europe. The subjects of study include methods of excavation of the archaeological resource, their conservation, classification and historical interpretation, as well as on knowledge of material culture, and within the protohistoric or early historic period on an ability to work with the oldest wtitten records. The link of archaeology to the humanities requires a general philosophical background and a knowledge of languages; on the other hand, the practical side of archaeology also requires technical and computer skills together with certain management skills. The admission examination, with written and oral components, serves as proof of competency for studies in Archaeology. Archaeology can be studied only as a full-time (internal) programme, either in the form of single subject study, or in combination with subjects like history, other historically linked sciences, ethnology, art history, classical archaeology or religious studies. It is possible to make other subject combination. Website in Czech and English. Arna Nováka 1 602 00 Brno
Katedra archeologie, Fakulta filozofie, Západočeská univerzita v Plzni / Department of Archaeology, University of West Bohemia in Pilsen
The Department of Archaeology at the University of West Bohemia is the largest university centre for archaeological study in the Czech Republic. It offers both undergraduate (BA) and graduate (MA) study programmes. Apart from the principal focus of the department on the Czech and European archaeology (prehistoric, medieval and post-medieval) its study plan is orientated towards stressing the importance of non-destructive methods of fieldwork, towards the conception of archaeological sources in their wider context (spatial / landscape archaeology), towards the extensive cooperation with natural sciences and towards the development of theory and methodology. The aim of the department is the archaeology-based education of students who should gain a deep sense of the past artefactual heritage and its significance for humankind. Also, the students are trained to achieve abilities in disciplines which university study programmes of other social sciences do not offer, such as special software and hardware application (databases, GIS, digital image processing, GPS), aerial archaeology, remote sensing, etc. The department also prepares students for both specialised work in archaeology and allied disciplines, and for their follow-up post-gradual education.
