A degree in archaeology or art history prepares students to be successful in a variety of careers.
Ours majors take part in archaeological field schools all over the world, including Tin City on the UE campus.
The Department of Archaeology and Art History offers challenging learning experiences through an interdisciplinary approach. Students are required to take classes in a range of fields outside of their major with faculty who provide collaborative and supportive interaction. The department also engages its students in purposeful experiences such as fieldwork within the United States and abroad. Eighty percent of students participate in study abroad experiences.
UE’s close-knit department is one of few Mediterranean archaeology programs in the region and unusual in that it grants a BA in archaeology. The archaeology major concentrates on ancient Mediterranean, Near East, and Western Europe. The department’s art history major offers a focus on western art, but also provides exposure to the art of China and Japan.
The academic profile of archaeology and art history students is high. Every semester, approximately 20 students make the Dean's List. Students seek out and have been awarded competitive undergraduate scholarships from the National Science Foundation, National Park Service, and UExplore Undergraduate Research. With a pool of motivated students like these, the department has produced many successful alumni who work in an array of fields.
