Degree Requirements

The curriculum for the Geoarchaeology concentation is currently in progress and detail will be available at a later date. The curriculum will include a minimum of six required courses during the first year and six during the second year. Additional courses may be required in the context of each concentration and working competency in a foreign language must be demonstrated.

There are field work and laboratory requirements for this concentration and the thesis is mandatory. Students are expected to begin their thesis work during their second year and to have completed their requirements within a year of final coursework. It is expected that all or significant portions of these will be publishable in recognized peer-reviewd outlets.

Students must obtain at least a B grade in each of the required courses. Any classes resulting in a C+ or C grade must be repeated. More than two C's in required courses will result in dismissal from program. Students who earn a grade of B or higher in a repeated course will have their original grade replaced by a PASS on their transcript. The student will be allowed to retake only two courses and any D grade will also result in dismissal from the program. Students dropped from the program may petition for readmission after one year.
