BSc or HBSc Geoarchaeology


The Departments of Anthropology, Geography, and Geology collaborate in offering an undergraduate BSc or HBSc degree in Geoarchaeology, one of very few such undergraduate programs offered in North America. This program represents the application of geographical and geological concepts as well as methods that aid in the interpretation of the archaeological record of ancient human societies. It involves interdisciplinary studies in areas such as archaeological site formation, paleogeography, paleoenvironmental reconstruction, chronometric dating, as well as physical and natural science applications to archaeological materials.
