Archaeology is the study of the human past through its material remains. The minor in Archaeology draws upon courses in Anthropology, Art History, Biology, Classical Studies, and Geography that focus on archaeological evidence, material culture, methods of archaeological inquiry and analysis, and/or the study of human behavior. This minor gives students who are already focusing on archaeology through such courses (and, in some cases, summer fieldwork) the opportunity to declare their interest more officially and the incentive to specialize more closely. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers or postgraduate study not only in archaeology, but also in fields such as ancient art history, GIS (geographic information systems), conservation, architectural history, museum studies, and cultural property law.
