During the Archaeology program from University of British Columbia, you can pursue studies in archaeology by tailoring your course selection to include an archaeological focus and selecting a specialization in Anthropology or Classical.


Archaeology courses in the Department of Anthropology at University of British Columbia explore the archaeological past of British Columbia, subarctic Canada, Mesoamerica, eastern Asia, east Africa, and Europe while emphasizing current methods, theory, and practice of archaeological research. Although not a degree program in itself, the concentration allows students to explore the subject as a focus of their studies towards a BA in Anthropology.

UBC is active in a broad program of archaeological projects in Mesoamerica, Europe, and the Middle East.
