To declare the minor, a student must achieve a grade of B or above in a designated gateway course (see list under “About the Major” http://www.wesleyan.edu/archprog/about_major.html )
The Minor Program
The Archaeology Minor requires a minimum of six credits in Archaeology. These must include:
- One designated “Gateway” course
- One designated “Thinking through Archaeology” course
- One course in each of four areas (anthropology, classical civilization, art history, methods and theory)
For a listing of the different courses in each of these categories, see “About the Major” http://www.wesleyan.edu/archprog/about_major.html
- We encourage students to take the “Gateway” course before their chosen “Thinking through Archaeology” course. However, as we have no prerequisites for entry to archaeology courses, it is possible for students to complete these requirements in reverse order.
- With prior approval from the chair of the Archaeology Program, the methods and theory requirement may be fulfilled by academic credit from a field school program. We strongly encourage minors to gain fieldwork experience in archaeology.
- Upon the discretion of the Archaeology chair, one non-fieldwork archaeology credit may be transferred in to cover a gateway or area requirement.
- No more than two courses cross-listed with the student’s major will be counted toward the Archaeology minor.
