The Historical and Archeological Studies program prepares students to understand and analyze the processes of historical development in ethnic and social communities, countries, and regions; to understand the differences between the scientific and socially-oriented historical knowledge.

During their studies, students get a thorough introduction to the theoretical approaches and practical tools of social sciences and humanities, as well as to the contemporary methods of the historical primary sources analysis. Getting themselves familiar with the history and the latest achievements of the Russian and international historical thought, students will develop the skills to work with different types of historical knowledge.

Students can specialize in Archeology, World history, and the History of Russia, and build individual educational paths through the program.

Specialization in Archeology offers courses that help students to become experts in this field. Students will have an opportunity to use 3d scanning of artifacts, unmanned aerial vehicles for aerial archeology, nondestructive geophysical methods for identification of archaeological sites, as well as other cutting-edge methods and technologies.

Archaeological fieldwork is an integral part of the program which aims to provide the students with hands-on experience. Future archeologists need to understand that their studies and profession are connected with field research which can be conducted under different weather conditions and require a good physical shape and emotional resilience.

During the studies, students will get opportunities to work closely with highly qualified professors, to participate in internships, and to conduct independent research.

The alumni can build careers in science, higher and secondary education (research centers and research institutes in humanities, universities, colleges, schools), archives, libraries, cultural centers, public authorities, mass media, analytical and expert centers.
