Notes

  • Students are strongly advised to plan course selection carefully in order to acquire needed prerequisites and to prepare for graduate school or careers in different specialties.
  • Students are required to gain relevant archaeological field and/or laboratory experience. They are
    encouraged to take one of two existing field courses, ANTH 3000Y or AHCL 3850Y, which are normally
    offered in the summer. Those who are unable to take one of these courses may substitute ANTH 3151H and 3152H, which are normally offered during the regular school year. Alternatively, students may register in a field school or lab methods course at another university by obtaining a Letter of Permission from the Office of the Registrar prior to registering in the course. See Letters of Permission in the calendar for additional details.
    • Students who already have extensive field and/ or laboratory experience (such as from previous
    archaeological employment) should consult with the program coordinator, who may consider waiving
    the degree requirement for a field or lab course. At a minimum, students would normally have to have
    the equivalent of four weeks of full-time work in the field and/or lab (i.e., 160 hours total). If such a waiver is approved, the student will need to substitute an additional course, with the coordinator’s approval, in order to meet the total number of required courses.
    • Courses fulfilling University science course requirements for the BSc are marked (Sc) in the individual course descriptions.
    • Courses fulfilling the core specified credits of the degree may not simultaneously satisfy the distributional
    requirements related to Categories A–D.
  • A minimum grade of 60% in INDG 1000Y and in two of AHCL 1001H, ANTH 1001H, 1002H, 1010H,
    or 1020H (or in ANTH 1000Y) is required for the Honours BSc in Archaeology and the Honours BA with
    a Specialization in Anthropological Archaeology. A minimum grade of 60% in two of AHCL 1001H, ANTH
    1001H, 1002H, 1010H, or 1020H (or in ANTH 1000Y) is required for the Honours BA with a Specialization in
    Classical Archaeology.
  • There is no joint-major program, General program, or minor in Archaeology.
