The IMQP Master
The International Master in Quaternary and Prehistory (IMQP) lasts two years (120 ECTS). It is formed of a partnership of four HEIs with multi-annual experience in prehistoric research and formation: Università degli Studi di Ferrara (Italy, coordinator), Muséum National d’Histoire naturelle (France, partner), Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Spain, partner), Instituto Politecnico of Tomar (Portugal, partner). The main subjects of the IMQP educational program are the following: prehistory, anthropology, human palaeontology, chronology, evolution of fauna and flora, archaeometry and Quaternary geology. The main objective of the Master is to provide an essential knowledge on Prehistory and Quaternary geology by adopting an interdisciplinary approach and exploiting the scientific specialities of each partner Institution.
The IMQP aims at offering a solid education to students for their future professional placement: a valuable preparation to the knowledge and use of scientific methods for a cultural and naturalistic approach to the reconstruction of human history; good skills to coordinate multidisciplinary interventions; an up-to-date, in-depth and interdisciplinary knowledge of research in Prehistory and Quaternary geology through interaction with the most important European institutions involved in research and formation in these fields of study.
