The Global Archaeology Field Project is a for-credit opportunity for students to learn the basics of archaeological field research. Offered through Penn's College of Liberal and Professional Studies, this summer field course is taught by professional archaeologists and technical specialists on location at sites around the world. Students learn modern archaeological methods and theory as well as the cultural heritage of the site and surrounding community. The Global Archaeology Field Project has no prerequisites and is open to all Penn undergraduates and graduates as well as visiting students.
