The Archaeology Minor


A total of eight courses are required for the Archaeology minor. The minor co-directors can advise students about which courses may fulfill the requirements for the minor. These courses are in many college departments and include courses conducted by visiting professors. Students are encouraged to consult with the minor co-directors, who are available to help students and instructors of supporting courses.

Field Experience

Students are highly encouraged to become involved in archaeological fieldwork beyond the context of their coursework at Carleton. The Archaeological Institute of America's Fieldwork Bulletin is an excellent resource for locating opportunities. Enrolling in an external program of fieldwork is not a formal requirement of the minor, but can count toward supplementary coursework. Again, students are encouraged to discuss possible opportunities with the minor co-directors.
