In this general context, the University of the Algarve has been committed, since its formation, to the scientific area of Archaeology. The development of this scientific area has occurred at various levels, including the creation of several 1st Cycle (undergraduate) and 3rd Cycle (doctoral) courses, as well as a 2nd Cycle: the Master's Degree in Archaeology.
- Further training in of graduates in archeology or related scientific areas
- To provide vocational qualifications
- To promote the scientific development in this area
The first aspect has to do with understanding the 2nd cycle in archeology as the graduate's specialization in a specific theme within this scientific field (or in its "branches" of History, Anthropology, Cultural Heritage, etc., or of Earth Sciences); the second derives from the State's (General Direction of Cultural Heritage) formal requesites to authorize the direction of archaeological research only to Masters in archeology; finally, the third aspect is inherent to the scientific production, ie, promoting the development of novel and original scientific work and thus, the development of research.
