Welcome to the Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies
Our new Archaeology and Heritage Studies program explores the archaeology of the New World and the Ancient Mediterranean World. The program focuses on the cultures of North America, in both the pre-contact and post-contact periods after the arrival of Europeans, and the ancient societies of Greece, Rome and the Near East.
You’ll be trained in the methods of field archaeology and analytical techniques used in modern archaeology within the context of the larger field of heritage conservation and preservation. Courses in this program are a mixture of theory and the practical applications of that theory in our archaeological laboratories where studies in material culture are conducted.
