The undergraduate concentration in Archaeology and the Ancient World provides students with the opportunity to explore the multi-faceted discipline of archaeology while examining the critical early civilizations of the so-called “Old World” — that is, the complex societies of the Mediterranean (not least Greece and Rome), Egypt, and the ancient Near East. The concentration, with its three tracks and its encouragement of fieldwork and independent research, is designed to allow students flexibility in structuring their own path through this remarkably diverse, and highly engaging, field of study. Students interested in learning more about concentrating in Archaeology and the Ancient World should talk with the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Felipe Rojas.
