The mission of the Archaeology Program is to train students in the theory, methods, and applications of archaeology. The archaeology major accomplishes this by combining elements from the social sciences, humanities, and the natural sciences into an interdisciplinary study of the past. A minor in archaeology is also available.

Because of its interdisciplinary nature, archaeologists find employment in a wide variety of work settings such as museums, colleges and universities, government agencies, public and private foundations, and consulting firms in a diverse array of roles including educator, researcher, administrator, and consultant
