The emphasis is on gaining a degree of familiarity with prehistory and antiquity findings (anthropology, history, art history courses), developing knowledge of specialized skills relating to archaeological research (science, math, history, etc., courses), and, if possible, obtaining archaeological field and lab experience.

Many of our archaeology minors are also anthropology majors, and a number have been successful in obtaining employment in the field of cultural resource management.
