The Minor in Archaeology



Students have worked on geographical surveying in Idaho, as volunteer excavators in the Athenian Agora, and many other projects. (Smith has been represented in greater numbers than any other undergraduate college in the students chosen to dig in the prestigious excavations at the Athenian Agora.) Smith Collegeis a founding member of the American Academy in Roma and the American School of Classical Studies in Athens and Smith students have been admitted most every year to the highly competitive summer programs at both institutios. In addition, Smith College institutional memberships and affiliations include the American Schools of Oriental Research, the American Journal of Archaeology (founding member 1885 and a founding member of the Society that supports the journal), and the Inter-Collegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome (charter member 1964.) Smith students take benefit from programs offered by these institutions and our faculty are active in all of these organizations.
