The graduate program in archaeology is well-known for its depth in Western North American prehistory, lithic analysis, modeling and simulation, behavioral ecology, and environmental archaeology rather than general anthropology, but incoming students must have knowledge of general anthropology equivalent to that gained by completing an undergraduate major. Students take a set of core courses in their first year to gain a background in general anthropology. The required courses for the MA and the PhD provide a general archaeological background in support of each degree. They are designed to furnish the student with a sound theoretical and methodological background, and a familiarity with professional archaeological research emphasizing Western North America.
