A New Field of Study in Archaeology: The Minor in Interdisciplinary Archaeology

Starting during Spring 2013, USC students can now undertake the study of archaeology in our new degree program, the Minor in Interdisciplinary Archaeology. Archaeology is a highly interdisciplinary field through which material remains of our shared human past are recovered, analyzed, interpreted and recieved in contemporary society. Students interested in understanding the methods and intellectual constructs with which archaeologists work are able to adopt a minor course of study that is highly responsive to their specific intrests (e.g. culture history and language of Greece or China or pre-Columbian Americas; or spatial historical studies of ancient society; or human-environmental interactions through deep time in a landscape; ancient innovation and its impacts in society).

Courses for this minor will be taught by professors from the following departments: Anthropology, Art History, Classics, Material Science, Middle Eastern Studies, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Earth Science, Spatial Sciences, Judaic Studies, History, International Relations, East Asian Languages and Cultures, and Linguistics
