Archaeology is the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture. The Minor at Earlham is a cross-divisional venture between Sociology/Anthropology, and archaeologists in the Geology and Ancient & Classical Studies departments, and the Joseph Moore Museum, with additional contributions from the Art and Philosophy departments as well as the Library Archives.

The Minor in Archaeology will provide students adequate background to pursue graduate study or entry-level jobs in Archaeology when combined with a major in Sociology/Anthropology, Geology or Ancient and Classical Studies.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
