Archaeology, Geography, & Applied Anthropology

An Interdisciplinary Experience Like No Other

The Archaeology, Geography, & Applied Anthropology Program offers an interdisciplinary 33-credit major and career-oriented certificates in Archaeological Methods, Applied Geographic Information Systems, Applied Anthropology, and Cultural Landscape Studies. 

Highlights of the Program:

  • Unique: The program offers a specific combination of courses and training distinct from other regional programs in its specific course structure, certificate programs, and experiential learning opportunities.
  • Career-Focused: With a course structure and certificate offerings specifically designed to meet the needs of future employers in a wide range of fields, you will complete meaningful internships as part of your degree requirements and produce tangible work products that you can present to prospective employers.
  • Technologically Advanced: Experience technical training in two fields - GIS and 3D scanning/printing - that are anticipated to undergo sustained growth in the near future. The geospatial market is growing at an annual rate of almost 35 percent, with an anticipated GIS global market size of $17B by 2023.  3D scanning/printing, though newer, is also growing rapidly and is expected to reach a market size of $5.7B by 2020.
  • Research-based: Our program is built around an ongoing research project investigating the history, culture, and geography of the South Lake Champlain Basin. All program courses will feature place-based, collaborative learning, and students will have extensive opportunities to participate in ongoing fieldwork.
