The PhD Program

Students form a supervisory panel which consists of a principal supervisor, an associate supervisor and up to three advisors. Advisors are regularly from outside the Department and students are encouraged to seek out other ANU faculty and external experts to supplement the expertise on their advisory panel. The program length is typically three to four years, although other arrangements are possible. Students are expected to develop projects that are compatible with the research strengths in the Department.

ANH currently has an Australian Postgraduate Award (Industry) scholarship available. Australian and international students with an interest in the project are encouraged to apply.

The Masters Programs

ANH is a key participant in the ANU Master of Archaeological Science program, and also offers research-based Masters programs. The research-based program is one to two years long and leads to a dissertation. Students form a supervisory panel which consists of a principal supervisor, an associate supervisor and up to three advisors. Advisors are regularly from outside the Department and students are encouraged to seek out other ANU faculty and external experts to supplement the expertise on their advisory panel.
