Archaeology

Archaeology

Ideal for those with an interest in the physical remnants of people of the past, archeology courses straddle the humanities and social sciences to look at human history through many millions of years of development. To do this, archaeologists study historical sites, structural remains, bones, tools and other artifacts. Though not guaranteed to be as dramatic as the famous on-screen adventures of fictional archeology professor Indiana Jones, archeology nonetheless offers exciting opportunities to be at the forefront of new discoveries and theories.
