ARCHMAT is a multidisciplinary international joint 2-years Master course (120 ECTS) within a consortium of 3 Programme Country degree-awarding HEIs (Evora-UEVORA, the ARCHMAT Coordinating Institution and its HERCULES Laboratory for the Study and Conservation of Cultural Heritage, Thessaloniki-AUTH and Sapienza Rome -UNIROMA1) and of HEIs and Museums as associated partners from Italy, France, Spain, Brazil, Belgium and Israel. ARCHMAT is characterized by a compulsory mobility scheme that will see ARCHMATIANS moving from Portugal to Greece and Italy during their first three semesters with the last 4th semester dedicated to Thesis Research and Dissertation at UEVORA, AUTH or UNIROMA1 according to the thesis projects selected at the end of the third semester. Thesis projects may include internships at one of ARCHMAT's associated partners institutions.


ARCHMAT learning outcome is to provide students with specialized skills in archaeology and analytical characterization of materials (Archaeometry) from prehistory(Megalithic) to classical times (Greek and Roman).
