EIDEMAR’s strategy includes creating Master’s programmes that will increase the current Doctoral programmes. This initiative is currently being tested, and its implementation is predicted for 2016-2017. The Master’s in Nautical Archaeology, at the University of Cádiz, will be the first of these programmes to depend directly on EIDEMAR.

Matriculation in said Master’s degrees will follow the usual protocols of the University of Cádiz, which are described in the following link

Master’s in Nautical and Underwater Archaeology

From 2016-2017, the University of Cádiz and CEI·MAR will offer an official Master’s Programme in Nautical and Underwater Archaeology (60 ECTS), which is aimed at national and international students, especially those from Maghreb and Latin America – areas with which the University of Cádiz has a consolidated relationship. The target of these programmes is to prepare two kinds of specialists to work in archives, museums, management bodies, private companies, universities, research centres, etc.:

  • Researchers and field technicians in underwater archaeology
  • Researchers in maritime history.

Students will receive theoretical and practical training of the highest quality, thanks to the participation of national and international experts.

  • MODULE 1 – 30 ECTS – Provides theoretical information on research techniques for any historical period, and the most important events and processes in maritime history.
  • MODULE 2 – 18 ECTS – An eminently practical module, to be carried out in UCA or one of its associated institutions. It includes:
    • Underwater archaeological research seasons (the oceanographic vessel UCADIZ will be involved).
    • Research and practical learning in archives, museums and other management institutions.
  • MODULE 3 – 12 ECTS – Master’s dissertation.
