How is the Program Structured?

Students will receive academic course credit for their participation and, therefore, the academic rigor of the program is high. The archaeology component will be fulfilled through full participation in the weekly excavation schedule, while the majority of the history hours will be met through lectures, roundtable discussions and weekly field trips.
