The department of Archaeology at the Faculty of Archeology and Anthropology was established in 1984. It awards bachelor and master's degrees in archaeology. The taught courses at the department deal with clarifying the development and principles of archaeology and its importance in the study of the region's history and ancient civilizations through material remains. Students learn to identify the ancient civilizations in the region, the characteristics of their archaeological remains, and the way these remains are dated, analyzed and studied. The faculty members at the department conduct excavations and field projects in archaeological sites, which usually carried out in collaboration with foreign universities and institutions.
