Why study archaeology?

Students pursue their interests in archaeology at Boston University through research in the classroom, laboratory, library, and in the field doing surveys and excavations.  Archaeology offers tangible career benefits for those holding bachelor or graduate degrees. Our undergraduate alumni pursue careers in archaeology following their time at BU, working for state or federal agencies, private contract firms, research centers, and through graduate study at top-ranked universities in the US and abroad.
