If you are interested in archaeology and archaeological digs, this month long program to Israel is a perfect fit. This 6-credit archaeological field school at Tel Akko, with an optional 3-credit independent study option, integrates the multifaceted aspects of twenty-first-century archaeology that combines excavation, survey, geographic information systems (GIS), conservation, heritage studies, public archaeology, and archaeological sciences.
There will be an information session for interested students Tuesday, November 5 at 5:45pm in 205 Ferguson.
Liberal Arts anthropology major Stephanie Malpica participated in this program last summer; she gained valuable knowledge throughout the dig that she will utilize in her future career as a cultural anthropologist in the Middle East.
"This opportunity was packed to the brim with activities, excellent professors, mentors, and students." - Stephanie Malpica
The application deadline for Summer 2014 is February 1, 2014.
