The Department of Archaeology offers MA and PhD programs. Normally, students must have completed a thesis MA in order to be admitted to a PhD program at SFU. Students who have an exceptional record of publication may be admitted to the PhD program without a thesis MA. Within the Department the Graduate Program is supervised by the Graduate Program Committee (GPC), which consists of all available faculty, the Graduate Secretary, and a Graduate Student Representative. It is chaired by the Graduate Program Chair. Most of the work of this committee is delegated to a subcommittee called the Graduate Executive Committee (GEC), consisting of the Graduate Program Chair, two faculty members, the Graduate Secretary, and the Graduate Student Representative. The GEC deals with the day-to-day running of the Graduate Program. The full committee (GPC) only meets when program changes are proposed, when graduate applications are being considered, and to conduct annual Graduate Progress Reviews. The Graduate Student Representative is elected by the Graduate Caucus to sit on both the GPC and the GEC.
