Welcome to the Department of Archaeology

The Department of Archaeology provides training in Archaeology at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. While a variety of course areas are covered, considerable emphasis is placed on fieldwork, archaeological research, and theory and methods. Although not limited to the following areas, most research concentrates on Prehistoric and Historic Archaeology of the New World and Physical Anthropology.

The Undergraduate Program for majors leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree. In addition, an Honours BA program is offered. The Honours program is research-oriented, requiring coursework beyond the Archaeology Major, and leads to an Honours Thesis.

The Graduate Program is one of the traditional strengths of the Department. At this level, both Masters of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees are offered.
