Our archaeology major focuses on the discipline of archaeology itself and on the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean and adjacent areas in western and northern Europe. The interdisciplinary nature of the major provides an excellent liberal arts education, as well as the necessary preparation to attend graduate school or other professional schools. In addition, Evansville's archaeology major retains enough flexibility to allow you to pursue a double major in minor in other areas of study that interest you. Our archaeology students often complement their studies with course work in anthropology, history, classical studies, religion, or art history, as well as advanced classes in languages or sciences related to archaeology. The majority of archaeology majors spend at least one semester abroad studying at Harlaxton College - UE's British campus - or enrolling in programs such as College Year in Athens, American Institute for Foreign Study in Rome, American University in Cairo, and Aix-en-Provence in France. Students also have opportunity to participate in excavations, including our on-campus training dig Tin City, and hold internships in museums in the US and abroad.
The Center for Archaeology is an interdepartmental center that does not have its own individual course listings or degree program. The links here provide information about the undergraduate program in archaeology and the graduate programs in which students conduct archaeological research. We have different programs of study to suit a variety of interests; all options share the same introductory requirements, but allow you to develop your studies in a range of different direction. The central tracks in archaeology are the Interdisciplinary Major in Archaeology and the Major in Anthropological Archaeology.
IPCAA (the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology) offers a course of doctoral study in the arts and material culture of the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern worlds. Formally sponsored by the Departments of Classical Studies and of The History of Art, and located in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, IPCAA draws on a distinguished range of faculty in several disciplines and on the rich museum and library resources of the University of Michigan. With its self-consciously interdisciplinary character, IPCAA is today widely acknowledged as among the very top programs in the country for the professional training of graduate students in Classical Archaeology.
The Department of Art History and Archaeology offers both a Master of Arts degree and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in art history and classical archaeology.
Students become acquainted with the methodology and research tools of the discipline as well as with its subject matter, and are encouraged to explore such related aspects of culture as history and literature. In addition to providing those elements of a liberal education, the program prepares students who wish to specialize in art history or classical archaeology for graduate work.
The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, through its research, collections, exhibitions, and educational programming, advances understanding of the world's cultural heritage.

Three gallery floors feature materials from Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Bible Lands, Mesoamerica, Asia and the ancient Mediterranean World, as well as artifacts from native peoples of the Americas, Africa and Polynesia. With an active exhibition schedule, a membership program, and educational programming for children and adults, Penn Museum offers the public an opportunity to share in the ongoing discovery of humankind's collective heritage.
