ABOUT THE MASTER
The Architecture, Landscape and Archaeology Master is a European study programme for architects and archaeologists that aims the enhancement of archaeological sites. The programme will be providing advanced education to prepare highly qualified individuals in the heritage sector, and aims to transfer tools and knowledge to develop an innovative cooperation among architects, landscape architects and archaeologists, for the creation of a common ground.
Cultural heritage is a complex area, requiring collaborative interdisciplinary and transnational approach. ALA proposes a training path focused on archaeological sites where issues regarding conservation, enhancement and design at multiple scales need to be coordinated. These experts should handle applied technologies for scientific survey, representation and didactic communication, should understand on-field archaeological excavation and design issues, should acquire soft skills for this transversal cooperation (interdisciplinary dialogue, inter-institutional collaboration, communication capacity, teamwork, systemic views, analytical and synthetic thinking, negotiation and entrepreneurship). Coordinated by the University of Rome La Sapienza, the programme have as partner institutions the Technical University of Athens, the University Federico II of Naples and the University of Coimbra.
The joint character of the Consortium is based on a comprehensive strategy that involves an international mobility-based curriculum, the introduction of complementary disciplines in four different cities and the selection of diverse case studies, the design practise, the exchange of cultural traditions and scientific knowledge.
The Language of instruction is English. Students need to be fluent in English.
