Since the beginning of the 20ties century in Poland archaeology has become a separate course at the university. From the history of archaeology we know that our discipline was first taught at the University in Lvov (Lwów), then at the University in Kraków and after the World War I the Department of Archaeology as a separate direction at the university have been established at the University in Warsaw (Warszawa) and in Poznań. Along with the increase of education and with the advent of many specializations within the humanisties alone, especially within the history but also within ethnology and cultural anthropology and established within the last decade new university courses such as: Ochrona Dóbr Kultury (Cultural Heritage); Muzealnictwo (Museums Studies); Krajoznastwo (Landscape Studies); Turystyka – turystyka historyczna (Historical Tourism) i turystyka kulturowa (Cultural Tourism), for each of this course one archaeological subject is predicted. This subject is taught under the name dependent on the discipline, it is called: Prehistoric Europe/Prehisotry of Polish Lands/Prehistoric Cultures. This subject should be treated as mandatory according to some ministerial standards, but very small number of hours is dedicated to it, usually is 30 hours of lectures in one semester. In my article I try to look at the current Polish situation and gather some observations concerning syllabuses and textbooks. On the bases of my observations I try to identify some bullet points which can be used as the guided items for the discussion concerning the goals , effects, learning outcomes of this type of university lectures.
