About

Biblical Archaeology from Wheaton College Illinois is an integrative discipline that lies at the intersection of biblical studies, ancient languages, and the social sciences.

The combination of these disciplines provides a strong liberal arts foundation for a variety of vocations as students will be equipped to think historically, linguistically, and archaeologically. Of particular importance for the Christian is the way in which biblical archaeology provides a foundation for biblical study. Today as never before the cultural setting of the biblical text is accessible through archaeological and linguistic discoveries in the Near East. By mooring Scripture in ancient lifeways it is possible to clarify and enliven its message while exploring its contemporary relevance.

Archaeological Excavation

Each summer, students can sign up for  Wheaton in Israel and learn alongside professors and other archaeologists as they join the Excavation in Ashkelon program and the Tel Shimron Archaeological Survey.
