Thinking of pursuing an education in Archaeology, particularly with the focus on Southeast Asia? Here are some places to look up. You may also want to check out this page for information on scholarships and education, grants and funding, as well as other opportunities in field schools.



    • INALCO – The Institute National des Langues et Civilisations
      Orientales is not an archaeology school, but rather a language school offering courses of over 90 languages, some of which can only be studied here.


    • Gadjah Mada University – The Department of Archaeology at the Faculty of Cultural Sciences offers programmes in archaeology from undergraduate all the way to doctoral level. Website is in Indonesian.



    • Archaeological Studies Program, University of the Philippines – The Archaeological Studies Program (ASP) at the University of the Philippines Diliman was established on August 24, 1995. Multidisciplinary in nature, ASP is designed to oversee and coordinate instructional, rese arch and extension activities pertaining to the systematic discovery, reclamation, analysis, presentation and preservation of the material remains of past cultures.



    • Silpakorn University – Most of the website is in Thai (which I don’t read), but their graduate school offers MAs in historical archaeology and prehistoric archaeology.

    United Kingdom

    United States

    Again, this list is a work in progress and is by no means exhaustive. Over time, I hope to provide an large list of places offering archaeology in Southeast Asia, as well as from countries outside SEA.
