Why study Archaeological Science?

Archaeology is increasingly using scientific approaches to revolutionise research in areas such as human evolution and dispersals, the development of civilisation and the history of human-environment relationships. As a student in the Archaeological Science major, you'll study core archaeology courses in combination with electives that examine areas like geography, earth sciences, biology, and psychology. You'll develop skills in scientific reasoning and have the opportunity to apply them in the laboratory and in field settings, including on excavations and survey projects in Australia and overseas.
