The archaeology minor introduces students to the subfield of archaeology. It complements majors within all of the social sciences, humanities, and many of the natural and life sciences. Archaeology minors understand and appreciate humanity’s shared past through the investigation of the archaeological traces left behind by past peoples. They develop critical thinking skills that support them in careers that involve working with individuals of diverse national or ethnic backgrounds in education, museum and foundation settings, government and non-profit agencies, archaeological research firms, and non-traditional opportunities emerging in the private sector.

Students interested in pursuing a minor in Archaeology can speak with their major advisor for approval and to add the minor to their academic record.
