Archaeology Degree


Canadian Archaeology Courses

Introduction to Archaeology

Archaeology degrees at Canadian universities are structured so that during the first year, you will be provided with the key skills needed to become a sound archaeologist. In years 2 and 3, students can then choose to tailor the course to what interests them, such as delving into specific cultural periods throughout history or examining artefacts and bones.

Fieldwork is a huge part of any archaeology degree, and you will spend lots of time at excavation sites, museums, and areas of historical interest. Placement years are also commonplace, as you learn directly from experienced archaeologists and professionals.

Archaeology Careers and Salary

Archaeology graduates find employment within government agencies, universities, museums, heritage organisations, applied archaeological companies, or consultancies. A range of transferable skills allows graduates to pursue careers in business, teaching, journalism, civil services, police, media, marketing agencies, and management.

Archaeology Entry Requirements
