Message from the Department Head:

        Welcome to the Department of Archaeology and Tourism at Mutah University, the department offers a Bachelor and Master degrees. Our Archeology courses are also perfect electives for students in other fields. Student involvement is one of our most important goals, and we pride ourselves on the close relationship between our faculty and students, and the quality of opportunities we offer our majors. We lead the campus in enriched learning, including study abroad, community-based research activities, internships, and service learning.
       The Department of Archaeology and Tourism offers one of the nation's leading M.A. programs in applied Archeology. Graduate students in our program receive training in core areas of theory, research methods, data analysis, and application. Our students successfully pursue careers in government, Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Department of  Antiquities, and private sectors, community development, cultural heritage preservation, and environmental management. Our program also prepares students to move on to doctoral study in anthropology, Archaeology and other fields.
         We have nine full-time Academic staff with Different rank; our professors also hold positions on several boards for the university, Archaeological organizations and community activist, groups. Our Department members are often recognized with university and community, and national awards for their excellence in teaching, research and fellowship participation. Our department is unique in that our BA and MA alumnae stay connected with other alumnae and faculty/staff over the course of their careers. We have alumnae and student groups on Facebook so that our alums and community partners can relay job and professional development opportunities. It is because of these connections that the vast majority of our MA graduates find immediate employment as practicing anthropologists post-graduation.
