Sociology and Anthropology  
Advisor: Kevin E. Smith

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.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
