Explore the past
Archaeologists seek to explore the history of people and cultures through the study of material remains. Archaeology involves a concern for the management of archaeological sites, the interpretation of cultural heritage, and the ethics of preserving and presenting the human past.
Students minoring or completing a certificate in archaeology will gain hands-on knowledge of archaeological field and laboratory methods, become familiar with theories used to interpret the archaeological record, and learn about the importance of archaeology in contemporary societies.
Students may not declare or earn both a certificate and a minor in archaeology.
