Curriculum & registration

Excellence courses with high international profile

The EUR curriculum strategy is based on setting up a cooperative European platform for teaching and research. Thanks to the scope of the scientific and educational project and its citizen engagement, the EUR positions itself as a highly attractive excellence centre for students and researchers working at the top levels nationally and internationally.

Educational Programme 

The Université Paris1 will provide the resources and adapt the structures at its disposal in order to promote educational innovations within the EUR. The university’s research teachers as well as those of its partner institutions will take part in this curriculum.

The educational programme of the EUR will be organised as follows:

  • A transversal methodological basis in common, relying on cutting-edge methods in archaeology

* Prospection, survey 

* Recording data (archaeological, geographical and collections information systems)

* Microscopic and physico-chemical analysis methods allowing materials and ecofact characterization (carpological and osteological remains), use-wear traces; elementary analysis methods

* 3D image analysis and modelisation

* Iconographic, architectural, etc. analysis methods

  • Training articulated around the four challenges as defined by the EUR:

                     Challenge 1. Environment and climate change

                     Challenge 2. Power and inequalities

                     Challenge 3. Conflicts, mobilities and migrations

                     Challenge 4. Techniques and innovation

Students will receive complementary training to that of the Master’s 1 in the form of courses, workshops, internships and Summer Schools.

These courses and workshops will bring together practical and theoretical training, as well as include educational innovations (digital practices, MOOC, etc.). The participative summer schools will be based on the principle of “creative marathons” in bringing together teams of archaeologists, professors, students, artists and also citizens interested in the project.

The programme will be divided up as follows this year:

  • 1 start-off day in November 2021 in Paris
  • 1 week of intensive training in January 2022 in Paris (methods and Challenge 2: Power and inequalities)
  • 1 week of intensive training in May 2022 (methods and Challenge 4: Techniques and innovation)
  • 1 Summer School
  • 1 short-term internship (Summer 2022)
Encouraging student mobility on the international level

In order to favour student mobility on the international level, mobility grants will enable students to take part in internships in the Summer School or in training sessions offered by the partner institutions. Mobility grants will also allow students from foreign universities to participate in courses organized in Paris.

EUR certification

A University Degree specific to the EUR ArChal in the form of a certificate of competence (master’s level) and a Doctoral Certificate (doctoral level) will be awarded.

There will also be three doctoral contracts per year in the EUR focus areas. This programme will be based in the Archaeology Doctoral School (ED112) at the Université Paris 1
