Advisor: Kevin E. Smith, Department of Sociology and Anthropology
The minor in Archaeology draws upon the resources of anthropology, geography and geology, and history to provide a comprehensive view of modern archaeological techniques, particularly in those disciplines involved with diachronic studies of human cultures. In consultation with the advisor and appropriate departmental advisors, students may pursue flexible elective tracks focusing on the application of archaeological methods and techniques in anthropology, geography, or history. The minor in Archaeology requires 18 credit hours, including 9 hours of required courses and 9 hours of general electives from the list below. Each student is required to take electives from at least two departments, and a selection from all three departments is encouraged.
