Underwater Archaeology

In addition to fulfilling all the basic requirements for a minor (see Minor Fields of Study), to obtain a minor in underwater archaeology students must take 18 credits in history, historical archaeology, anthropology, classical archaeology, oceanography, and marine policy, at least 12 of which must be at the 200 level or above. The required courses and options are outlined below.

Students must take HIS/APG 490, and either APG 417 or ART 475 (six credits). Students are encouraged to take these required 400-level courses toward the end of their program of studies. In addition, students must take one course from each of the following four groups: classical archaeology/material culture (ART 251, 354, 475; ART/APG 465); anthropology (APG 202, 203, 302, 303, 319, 417; APG/MAF 413); history (HIS 130, 389, 390, 396); oceanography/marine policy (OCE 110, 123, 401, 451; MAF 100, 220).
