Historical Archaeology, MA

Our Master of Arts in Historical Archaeology draws on 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, imperialism, African Diaspora, past and present Indigenous peoples, globalization, urbanization, political economy, environmental change, food practices, multicultural societies of the modern world, social history of the disenfranchised, and heritage politics. We offer students a rich venue for engaging with these diverse research topics and data sources and frequently doing so in community-engaged and collaborative contexts.
