Anthropology Program


Archaeology Technology

Associate of Science

Archaeology Technology encompasses both archaeology and a number of sciences and technologies that are used in:

  • excavation and analysis of materials that are discovered;
  • analysis, curation and storage of those materials;
  • museum display;
  • reconstruction of past environments, and
  • publication of the results of excavation.

Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” average or better to meet specialization requirements. Students who are planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the specialization requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.

Sample Careers:

  • Contract archaeologist
  • Government archaeologist
  • Museum curator
  • College professor
