Secondary Fields

Archaeology – the study of the human past – is a vibrant field of study at Harvard, with faculty, programs and facilities located in the Social Sciences, Humanities, and the Natural Sciences. Students may draw upon a multitude of disciplines to further their interest in studying and understanding the human past either at the level of a major, within any one of several disciplines, or to pursue work at the level of a Secondary Field in Archaeology. This website will help students identify the many resources and programs offering course work and research opportunities in the archaeology of ancient societies around the world.
