Minor in Archaeology

Archaeology is the study of past peoples' ways of life through the excavation and analysis of artifacts. By studying past societies and cultures, archaeology explores the many avenues throughout time of what it means to be human. The archaeology minor is housed within the anthropology program.

Students who graduate with an archaeology minor are prepared both for career opportunities and for graduate work in anthropology. Because an archaeology focus is already available within the anthropology major, anthropology majors may not minor in archaeology.

NKU provides students with opportunities to do archaeology outside the classroom and develop résumé-worthy skills important in the job quest. Among the many experiences in which archaeology minors can participate are opportunities to go on archaeological digs, do laboratory analysis, develop museum exhibits, and work for local archaeology companies.
