One from:

One additional course chosen from any of the above three categories.

Minimum Semester Hours: 18

In the above framework, students may select a coherent set of four elective courses with the help and approval of an advisor in the minor program. This selection should be appropriate to their major and in keeping with their chosen interests, specialized skills, and plans for further study. Such a program design could stress specialized interests such as material analysis or computer graphics among others and choices from various fields in old world, new world, or marine archaeology for which field schools are available.

There are no modern language requirements for the archaeology minor, but students should consider where they plan to practice archaeology in their choice of college core language requirements. For old world archaeology the best modern language choices besides English are French or German, while Spanish is useful for much of new world archaeology.

Supervising and Advising

The group minor in archaeology is administered by D. Rohl (Historical Studies). Interested students should consult with him for admission to and planning of the archaeology minor.
