Archaeology Field School Tuition

Getting credit for a short course
Flinders University Students receive 4.5 units of credit towards their degree.

Overseas Participants receive a Certificate of Achievement which states that the short course is equivalent to the completion of the Flinders University topic ARCH8158, a 4.5-unit topic. Participants should be able to use this to negotiate their own credit transfer with their home institution.

Non-Flinders University Australian Students also receive a Certificate of Achievement which states that the short course is equivalent to the completion of the Flinders University topic, ARCH8158. You should be able to receive credit at your home institution equivalent to the value of a 4.5-unit Flinders University postgraduate topic.If you wish to have this unit of study credited to your home university degree, you should check that the Certificate of Achievement will suffice for the purpose, as we are unable to issue an academic transcript.

Archaeology Field School Description

This topic will be taught in the intensive mode (one week) and SCUBA diving qualifications are not required for participation.

Prior to the week of the intensive students will be expected to read several key articles, chapters, and books. These readings are compulsory. Most of the material in the topic will be relatively new to many of you, so your attention to the readings and assiduous questioning and analysis of them will help you succeed in this topic. Ship construction has its own language and terminology for some of you it will feel as if you are learning a new language. Therefore, your readings will be challenging as there are many terms that you will be unfamiliar with and will need to look up. Give yourself time to do this. There will be NO time for reading once the topic begins as this topic runs for eight hours a day and any after-hours time will be spent in the lab working on projects which will be due at the end of the topic. Each day students will be expected to attend seminars, lectures, and labs. Participation in all days is vital as the topic builds on each day. Attendance is mandatory, unless a university excused absence is documented. The seminars, lectures and labs will be organised by Dr Wendy van Duivenvoorde, lecturer in maritime archaeology at Flinders University, and guest lecturers such Mark Polzer, Research Associate at Flinders University and the Institute of Nautical Archaeology, Texas A&M University.
