(18 semester hours)


The Archaeology minor allows students to develop their skills in archaeological approaches to the human past, including field and laboratory techniques, material culture analysis, and cultural heritage management. This transdisciplinary minor is ideal for students interested in focusing their studies on the deep and diverse history of humans by analyzing and preserving the material remains of past communities. Archaeology combines critical thinking, scientific methods, and experiential research, making it a fitting and unique complement to a variety of student majors.

Only 9 semester hours may count towards any other major/minor. Students planning to take this minor should consult with the chief departmental advisor.
