A minor in Archaeology provides an introduction to the study of the material cultures of past societies. It can complement many majors, including but not limited to Anthropology, Applied Physics, Art and Art History, Classics, Earth Systems, Engineering, Geological and Environmental Sciences, History, and Religious Studies.

To minor in Archaeology, students must complete at least 27 units of relevant course work comprised of:

  • 10 units of core courses

  • 2-5 units of methods and skills courses

  • 5 units of theory courses

  • 10 units of elective courses

Students may design their own path through the minor.  Or, they may select from one of the three Archaeology minor tracks designed for STEM and humanities students. These Archaeology minor tracks are complete packages of courses that will comprise a full minor, and each track is made up of courses designed to appeal to students from different majors. While your minor will be noted on your diploma, the specific track you take will not.
