Students in the Archaeology program experience a hands-on approach combining rigorous classroom and laboratory training with field work around the world. Opportunities for field experience have ranged from Western Canada to the circumpolar North, as well as Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The program is offered through the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology, which embraces an integrative approach under the guidance of distinguished faculty members. Research areas include cultural heritage management, development of complexity, ethnoarchaeology, human-environment interaction, landscape, paleobotany, bioarchaeology, and social identity.
All graduate students must pay general fees each year, as well as program fees.
