NÆR, Project based course

Course content

The course will enable students to develop their own project in archaeology. The topic of the project(s) will be decided by students and teachers together. Afterwards lectures will give a starting point for discussions of the chosen topic and students will individually work on their project, that is part of the general topic.  During the semester active participation requires the production of a project based item, which could be a poster, homepage, museums tour or similar material. The product idea needs to be accepted by a supervisor beforehand.

The exam can only be taken after the described product has been finished and consists of a 1 week paper.
