The course offerings for the upcoming semester.
Open to all Penn students, CAAM courses are divided into three tiers: Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced levels.
The Minor in Archaeological Science consists of six course units. Of these six, four will be CAAM classes from introductory, intermediate and advanced levels; one must be an advanced class with an archaeological science research component (the capstone class); and one must be a class in the archaeology or culture of a relevant area.
The Graduate Certificate in Archaeological Science is aimed at students who want to add a scientific approach and interdisciplinary perspective to their studies. The certificate is open to Penn students admitted and already enrolled in a graduate program (Master or Ph.D.).
Each summer, both undergraduate and graduate students studying archaeobotany in the Center for the Analysis of Archaeological Materials (CAAM) can participate in a summer program that focuses on field training in archaeobotanical methods.
The Center for the Analysis of Archaeological Materials offers a series of intensive courses in the field of archaeological science. They are aimed at advanced undergraduates, graduate students, scholars, and professionals with a background in archaeology or in a relevant field (BA/BSc required).
