Archaeology Minor

Digging Deeper

The Department of History & Political Science’s archaeology minor offers students courses in archaeology study and allied fields such as anthropology, art, Bible & religion, film, and history. When paired with a major, such as history, this minor offers a solid foundation for students to continue their education in archaeology and related fields.

Through an interdisciplinary study of archaeology, students build an understanding of their personal interest in careers in archaeology, art, biblical studies, history, landscape studies, and museum studies. (Museum studies, another minor from the department, compliments archaeological study very well.)

Getting to Work

In addition to traditional classroom coursework, students are required to undertake an archaeological internship to gain practical professional experience. The University’s resources in research and network of alumni and contacts helps connect students with areas that suit their future goals and provide ways for students to conduct research alongside interdisciplinary faculty members.
