Graduate Certificate of Archaeology
The Graduate Certificate of Archaeology is a 60-credit point course for those wishing to develop or extend knowledge and skills in archaeology and provides a pathway into the Graduate Diploma and Masters of Professional Archaeology. The course provides a broad understanding of archaeological knowledge and skills as well as research skills. It is particularly useful for those who have not previously undertaken tertiary studies in archaeology.
La Trobe University offers a range of Postgraduate Pathways. The minimum entry requirement for a Graduate Certificate / Graduate Diploma Degree is successful completion of an Australian Bachelor degree (or its equivalent). Prior learning developed through relevant work experience or professional accreditation, where it is deemed to be at least equivalent to that obtained through a Bachelor degree, may be considered.
In making an offer to an applicant, the University will give consideration to a range of factors, including academic record, English proficiency, and/or employment experience.
NB: Meeting minimum entry requirements does not guarantee an offer of a place. Entry into all La Trobe courses is based on competitive selection and there may be limited places available.
Graduates are expected to find employment with commercial archaeology firms in Victoria and interstate, a sector which employs approximately 250 people in Victoria.
Fees and costs
$19,800 per 120 credit points.
