Having fieldwork experience is very important if you wish to work in archaeology after your graduation. For this case, we expect all our students in undergraduate degree programmes to participate primarily archaeological excavations and surveys currently being conducted by the department to complete their internships. However, in case of over quota in department’s excavations and surveys, students could complete their internships by participating other archaeological excavations and surveys or by working at private or government museums, Regional Directorates of Cultural and Natural Heritage Protection Boards etc. Following your undergraduate degree, you could continue as a professional archaeologist with organisations and institutions such as universities, or within public and private museums, government offices, Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Regional Directorates of Cultural and Natural Heritage Protection Boards or at local authority planning offices as an expert.
