Academics

Historical Archaeology, MA

Our Master of Arts in Historical Archaeology is a component of anthropological archaeology and historical anthropology. Our program thrives on using artifacts, documents, environmental data, landscapes, architecture, and oral history in its holistic anthropological studies of colonialism, past and present Indigenous peoples, globalization, urbanization, political economy, environmental change, multicultural societies of the modern world, and social history of the disenfranchised. We offer students a rich venue for engaging with these diverse research topics and data sources.
