Ethnology is the study of the everyday life of people. Everyday life and its routines are thought to reflect profound, both short- and long-term, cultural structures and thought patterns. Ethnologists study, among other things, a wide range of temporal strata, continua and revolutions, as well as contemporary cultural processes. Research may be focused on work, hobbies, objects or places.
Research in archaeology ranges from early human prehistory all the way to modern times. Archaeological material includes fixed relics, objects and traces of human activity found in nature.
After completing the course, students will have basic knowledge in archaeology pertaining to Finland and its neighbouring areas in the prehistoric and historical periods, as well as related cultural phenomena, tangible relics and objects. The course develops skills in professional reading and mastery over extensive subject matters.
