Archaeology Program

Aegean Prehistory Initiative

Students wishing to study Bronze Age Greece, especially the Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations, may choose to major in the Archaeology Program with a concentration in Aegean Prehistory. In addition to the regular requirements of the Program, such students will be required to take the following courses:

CCI 313, Aegean Archaeology

ATY 360, Method and Theory in Modern Archaeology

CCI 475, Archaeology of Death (with a focus on Prehistoric Greece)

CCI 401, Archaeological Practicum: Study in Greece (which may be repeated twice)

HON/ARC 500, Senior Thesis.

Students will work closely with Professors Soles and Murphy and, depending on their area of interest, will spend one or two summers working in Crete or on the mainland of Greece. Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the initiative is able to offer one or more scholarships of $500 each for students travelling to Greece. All students participating in the initiative are eligible for these awards, but must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.2.
