Art and Archaeology Major with Archaeology Concentration, B.A.

The art and archaeology major with a concentration in archaeology introduces students to the art, artifacts and cultures of the ancient world, as well as the field methods of archaeologists today. Hood students regularly participate in excavations in the U.S. and around the world, most recently at sites in Italy, Turkey, Belize and Bermuda. U.S. sites include battlefields and historical sites in Maryland and Virginia. We also encourage students to seek internship opportunities locally and worldwide, as hands-on experience is vital to future studies and employment in archaeology.
