We offer two undergraduate degrees in archaeology, a B.A. and a B.Sc. All archaeology students take certain courses in common, in order to attain a well-rounded basis in archaeology; they are also welcome to take courses from either degree. Choosing between the two is matter of each student’s individual nature and interests. For students interested in potential joint-major degrees with or a minor in archaeology, please consult the calendar for specific requirements.
B.A. in Archaeology: learn archaeological method, theory, and practice, as they apply to various sub-fields of archaeology. This degree is suited to those who are interested in archaeology as a whole.
B.Sc. in Archaeology: focus on scientific approaches to archaeology, such as the studies of biological remains and the ancient environment; learn technical applications and theories for studying the spectrum from broad trends in human interactions with the physical landscape, down to detailed analysis of an individual find. This degree is suited to those who are interested in archaeology and are inclined toward the sciences and math.
Specialization in Mediterranean Archaeology: Students may choose to graduate with a specialization in Mediterranean Archaeology if they have have fulfilled the requirements for a single- or joint-major Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree in Archaeology and also successfully completed 4.0 specific credits. Please see calendar for details and specific requirements.
