About

The Archaeology program from La Sierra University helps you learn to develop familiarity with the characteristics, developments, and key features of the archaeological periods present in the Near East.

Overview

Archaeologists examine, recover, and preserve evidence and artifacts from past human cultures. They connect artifacts with information about historic environments to learn about the experiences, customs, and living habits of people in earlier civilizations. Archaeologists often specialize in a particular geographic area, time period, or subject matter, such as animal remains or underwater sites. Many people with a Ph.D. in archaeology become professors or museum curators.

Career Outlook

Many archeologists work full time during regular business hours. When doing fieldwork, however, archeologists may be required to travel and to work many and irregular hours, including evenings and weekends.

The median annual wage for anthropologists and archeologists was $62,280 in May 2017. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $36,390, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $99,580.
