The MA in Archaeology prepares students for professional careers in museums and in public and private cultural resource management and heritage work as well as for further study towards the PhD in Archaeology or a related field. The intent of the program is to provide appropriate education and training in the recovery, analysis, and interpretation of archaeological materials and contexts while assuring sufficient background in one or more cognate fields, such as classics, art history, anthropology, and history. The program includes classroom and practical training in the quantitative methods and scientific techniques employed in the analysis, dating, and interpretation of archaeological finds, either within the framework of the Archaeology curriculum or within that of other departments or programs. Applicants must have a BA or BS, preferably from a program in archaeology or one related to archaeology (such as anthropology or classical studies, with a concentration in archaeology). Students lacking sufficient preparation in archaeology will be required to take courses, as determined by the Graduate Studies Committee, to make up the deficiency. On occasion these courses may be beyond the minimum specified by the Graduate School.
