On 16 April I wrote about an evaluation of archaeology programs offered at Swedish universities and colleges. Now Aard regular Åsa reports at the Ting & Tankar blog on the results of in-depth evaluations of certain programs that were judged to be of iffy quality (source1, source2).
Three programs have been issued warnings by the National Agency for Higher Education:
- The Mediterranean archaeology PhD program in Gothenburg
- The osteology PhD program in Lund
- The osteology MA program in Visby
All the warnings are due to inadequate quantity and quality of teaching staff per student. Two PhD programs, egyptology in Uppsala and osteology in Stockholm, escaped warnings because they have been voluntarily closed for application “until the situation improves”.
