Shaping our future by understanding our past
Calvin's archaeology program will teach you to recover and analyze the material remains of past cultures—artifacts, inscriptions, buildings, and ornaments—in the context of their ancient landscapes.
Join a program that draws from many different fields and complements any major. You'll get hands-on experience in the field and familiarity with the theory behind it. You'll use cutting-edge technology and techniques to learn about—and from—the past. And when you graduate, you'll be well prepared for specialized graduate school programs or a career in disciplines like biblical studies or ancient history.
