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 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.
