Field Trips and Projects
Digging up to rediscover
Getting experience in the field is a way to enhance in-class instruction. The department coordinates several field trips throughout the year allowing students to observe, discover, excavate, research, assist, and work with peers and faculty on a variety of projects in a real-world setting.
