At the College of Charleston, faculty from across four schools teach courses that expose students to the fundamentals and applications of archaeology. The minor program recognizes the completion of a course of study designed to highlight the interdisciplinary nature of a field that routinely integrates elements of the social sciences, humanities, arts, and natural sciences. This program serves as a means to unify and coordinate archaeological study at the College of Charleston and to provide a forum for intellectual contact between faculty and students.
“With knowledge gained from a variety of courses in the minor, I had the opportunity to plan and perform an archaeological excavation, analyze data gathered in the field, and coauthor and present a professional conference paper. That experience gave me the confidence to realize a career in archaeology. ”
– Nate Fulmer ’12 President of the Archeology Club Spring 2012
