The Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Program is a four-year program at the undergraduate level offered by the Faculty of Arts at Bethlehem University. The program offers its students an innovative approach to Archaeology and tangible and intangible Cultural Heritage. This program will contribute to a deeper understanding and extensive knowledge to students in and about their material heritage.
The program will avail to students the tools necessary to develop and present archaeological sites and cultural heritage to people in Palestine as well as tourists from all over the world through sustainable projects that tell the story of the place and its people. The program aims to build sustainable partnerships with the local community through research activities and field studies that students will carry out under the supervision of specialized professors and researchers.
These studies focus on the cultural heritage, and archaeological aspects in the countryside and cities in Palestine, through partnerships with European academic institutions and those working in the field of cultural heritage and archaeology.
This will certainly lead to the sustainability of research and teaching at Bethlehem University and other Palestinian higher education institutions and other governmental and non-governmental institutions working in the field of archaeology and cultural heritage.
