A minor in Archaeology focuses on the study of the past through scientific analysis of material remains, including artifacts (pottery, stone tools), features (architecture) and ecofacts (bones and seeds).

The Archaeology minor includes 19 hours of coursework and has two required courses: ANT 1407 Introduction to Archaeology and ANT 3308 Methods of Archaeology. A field school course is recommended for all students as well as ANT 4302 Archaeological Theory for students planning to apply to graduate programs.

Students who pursue this minor will have the opportunity to learn from world-class archaeologists who work internationally, gain experience in archaeological field and lab techniques, and work closely with faculty on cutting-edge research.
