2017-2018 Catalog > Undergraduate Studies > Undergraduate Majors > Art and Archaeology Major with Archaeology Concentration, B.A.
The art and archaeology major with a concentration in archaeology introduces students to the art, artifacts and cultures of the ancient world, as well as the theories and field methods of archaeologists today. Hood students regularly participate in excavations in the U.S. and around the world, most recently at sites in Italy, Turkey, Belize and England. U.S. sites include battlefields and historical sites in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. We also encourage students to seek internship opportunities locally and worldwide, as hands-on experience is vital to future studies and employment in archaeology.
Students who plan to earn an advanced degree in art history or archaeology should take French or German in preparation for graduate school. The department strongly suggests that majors spend a semester or year abroad.
