Study Abroad Opportunities

Majors in Archaeology are encouraged to spend a semester abroad, usually in the junior year. Study abroad is possible at a number of institutions with well-established programs in archaeology, anthropology and history, many of which provide opportunities to tour archaeological and historical sites in addition to coursework. Wesleyan students have recently participated in semesters abroad at these institutions:
