Introduction to Archaeology
This hybrid, 4-credit course is an exciting and fascinating approach to the study of human behavior. The artifacts that people leave behind offer important clues that help archaeologists learn more about the human past.
Students will have an opportunity to work with real artifacts, “read” historic documents like archaeologists, and participate in a “make your own artifact day”, among many other things. Most importantly, students will learn how to “think” like an archaeologist—how to generate observations about data and make inferences about what the data mean. Students also have an opportunity to hone reading, writing, researching, and communication skills.
