Archaeology at Carleton

  • Mazi Archaeological Project

    Welcome to Archaeology at Carleton

Archaeology is the interdisciplinary study of the past through its material remains, situated in  their cultural- environmental context. The introductory and core courses of the Archaeology Concentration at Carleton are designed to give students a methodological introduction to these three elements of materials, culture, and environment. In the supporting course projects, students take an interdisciplinary view, analyzing and interpreting material remains in a variety of ways. The range of supporting courses provides students with the flexibility to plan their own programs.

Students from any major may participate in the Archaeology Concentration. Students interested in the concentration are encouraged to consult with the faculty early in their sophomore year in order to plan ahead and retain as much freedom of choice as possible in meeting the requirements of the program.

Archaeology concentrators since 1991 have majored in:  Studio Art, Art History, Biology, Chemistry, Classics, Geology, History, Political Science, Psychology, Religion, and Sociology and Anthropology.
