Archaeology at Calvin
The interdisciplinary archaeology minor may be taken with any major and is designed to give you enough familiarity, theory, and practice of archaeology around the world to either qualify you for specialized graduate school programs or to be ready for a life of amateur enjoyment of the field.
The flexible archaeology minor program enables you to tailor your program with your advisor to match your interests and vocational goals. The minor requires two interdisciplinary courses, one geology course, and three electives including one archaeology-related interim course.
The archaeology program offers a number of opportunities for you to get your hands dirty, from interim trips to international archaeological sites to on-campus lab work and research. These opportunities are available in a variety of areas through the archaeology minor committee.
The Sally and Bert de Vries scholarship is awarded to help cover the costs of the required interim field work course.
