The Experience

In a country where only a handful of universities offers an undergraduate degree in Archaeology, Trent offers two: a B.A. (with two specializations possible) and a B.Sc. Find out what else sets us apart:

The faculty

We have more permanent faculty members than any other Canadian undergraduate archaeology program.
Students learn from award-winning instructors and researchers, whose wide-ranging interests result in a diversity of course and experiential choices for students.

The classroom experience

Our courses incorporate aspects such as:

  • methodology and approaches
  • cultural, regional, and thematic investigations
  • theoretical perspectives
  • our responsibilities as stewards of cultural heritage.

We encourage active engagement in learning, through small class sizes, seminars, and/or labs in many of our courses.

Hands-on experiences

  • Participate in our archaeology field courses in Ontario, Belize, or Greece.
  • Enroll in our laboratory courses to learn how to curate and analyze archaeological finds.
  • Take advantage of other opportunities to work with our faculty and/or our community
