Our Historical Archaeology graduate program began in 1981 and in the late 1980s began attracting students from outside the metropolitan Boston area. We expanded significantly in 2003 and have seen growing numbers of applicants from across North America and the Caribbean, expanded financial aid packages for enrolled students to offset tuition and fees, and more faculty members and research projects. The sharpness of focus yet depth of coverage in the Americas are made possible by faculty members with notable scholarly achievements, a strong and flexible curriculum, numerous active research laboratories and field projects, and the affiliated Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research.
