The Department of History offers a Minor in Archaeology to undergraduate students majoring in other disciplines at SNU as well as to History Majors. Students who opt to take a Minor in Archaeology will acquire a basic understanding of the discipline and can even apply for further studies in this field. Students must complete six courses totalling to 24 credits to obtain a Minor in Archaeology.
The Archaeology Minor enables students to interpret and use material evidence, to learn the field methods that are specific to archaeology, as well as appreciate how archaeological material, after it has been excavated or collected, is dealt with through analyses, curation and display. Students will also be introduced to some of the theories that pertain to archaeology. Through this programme, students will be able to take several courses in archaeology and in turn, be able to pursue a more specialized graduate programme in Archaeology as well as Museum Studies.
