Key learning outcomes The objective of a doctoral study programme is the completion of a scientific education in the field of archaeology so that the graduate will be able to perform independently scientific work in the Czech Republic and abroad. Doctoral studies of archaeology follow up on the master's degree level of studies. The foundation of doctoral studies consists in writing a dissertation and completing the compulsory and selected elective courses, which correspond to the basic specialisation of the studies of archaeology at the FA USB, i.e., 1) Archaeology of Prehistory and Early Middle Ages, 2) Medieval and Postmedieval Archaeology, 3) Environmental Archaeology, and 4) Archaeological Theory and Method. Great emphasis is placed on independent scientific work, which each student has to complete individually based on intensive contact with the teacher.
