Students enrolled in the archaeology minor get to explore societies and cultures of the past through their material remains. Students work to analyze and understand past societies through various disciplines like environmental science, history, anthropology, math, and museum studies.
Through a partnership with Historic Sandusky and programs with other local museums, students learn technical aspects of archaeological work and explore the theory and methods used by archaeologists to interpret artifacts.
Studying archaeology helps prepare students for careers in cultural resource management, museums, public education, historical sites, laboratories, government work, and administration. Other opportunities include jobs that require research, writing reports, management, surveys, and excavation.
