Introduction events

The master’s degree course (in German) is designed to train students in buildings archaeology and heritage conservation and to provide the sensitisation needed for dealing with historically important buildings. Buildings archaeology establishes an essential basis for the development of strategies for the conservation and use of historical monuments.

The interdisciplinary course qualifies students for careers in positions of responsibility in conservation bodies, specialist architectural companies, restauration companies, or research institutions.

The course concentrates on buildings archaeology and heritage conservation in the Berlin-Brandenburg region but also in an international context.

The starting point for the scientific analysis is formed by classical ancient architecture. The course also includes a variety of modules, such as: Buildings survey and recording, Built heritage studies, Historical building typology and construction, Buildings archaeology, Heritage conservation strategies, and Concepts of conservation and utilization.

Every year, students participate in a practical project, working on an historical building in the Berlin-Brandenburg region. This allows them to apply scientific methods they have learnt: surveying, building description, room logging, building phase analysis, archive research, building history, damage mapping, and the formulation of a conservation plan.

Students are able to benefit from the practical experience of external lecturers (conservators, architects, etc.). They also have opportunities to take part in a range of research projects in Berlin-Brandenburg, in the Mediterranean region, or in a global context.

This course is aimed particularly at applicants who are interested in a career in science and research.
