Coursework and fieldwork in archaeology is particularly suitable for involving students with the roots of cultural complexity which characterizes the modern world. The discipline itself studies the attributes of humans and their accomplishments over the last 2.5 million years. The requirements for the major are designed to accommodate two different interests: first, students who seek basic training in the field with the intent of continuing in careers in archaeology, and second, students who expect to pursue careers in science, medicine, history, classics, art, business, or education, who find archaeology exciting and fulfilling as a second coordinate major.
Declaring a Major or Minor
Declare the major or minor on WebSTAC under the Major Programs link. Make an appointment with John Kelly, McMillan Hall 131. Be prepared to select one of the archaeology faculty members as a major (or minor) advisor at this meeting.
