Program Description

The International MA Program in Maritime Civilizations offers students an exceptional opportunity to explore the history, archaeology, and fabric of maritime societies, as well as the natural environment in which they developed and the anthropogenic environments in which they currently exist. Students enrolled in the program examine a variety of fields pertaining to maritime civilizations and the marine environment, including coastal and underwater archaeology, marine biology and ecology, maritime history, maritime geology, and geomorphology.

The interdisciplinary curriculum offers advanced knowledge and research training to students interested in exploring human interactions with the sea in a dynamic learning environment.

What you will study

Over the course of study, special emphasis is placed on harbors, ships, and seafaring as part of the maritime heritage of the Mediterranean. The program sheds light on the ecological and geomorphological dynamics in the eastern Mediterranean and their influence on the interaction between man and the sea in ancient and modern times. This program provides a balance between frontal lectures and learning that is based on ongoing, active research carried out in the field and laboratories at the Department of Maritime Civilizations and the Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies.

Culminating in a capstone project, the one-year program is taught in English over three consecutive semesters from October until September. Students wishing to pursue the thesis track are encouraged to do so and will need to submit a research thesis within one year of completing their coursework.

Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a Master of Arts in Maritime Civilizations.
