Classical Archaeology

The major in Classical Archaeology seeks to put students in contact with the material cultures of Greece and Rome and peoples closely associated with them. Tools will be provided to reconstruct the ancient life-ways of these peoples as well as skill development in the interpretation of ancient social, political, and economic systems.

The major assists students for graduate study in anthropological archaeology, classical archaeology, cultural resource management, and historical preservation. It also provides any student with a strong intellectual interest in archaeology with a structured introduction to this field.


FAS 110  Drawing I and FAS 210  Drawing II as well as a course in Statistics are strongly encouraged.

The student must also pass a written comprehensive examination in the methods and techniques of archaeology as well as the material culture of Greece and Rome.
