SUMMARY

Choosing to study Archeology is a valuable choice and frequently a mandatory first step for scholars choosing to enter a career as a historic buildings inspector, a museum education officer, or an archaeologist. Interestingly, nationally, archeology is an uncommon major ranking as the 333rd most popular area of study. Last academic year alone, there were 255 archeology graduates. In-state tuition for archeology at private universities is, on average, 4.6 times more expensive than their public counterparts.

With only 48 institutions having programs for archeology there might be a more finite list of the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're hoping to immerse yourself with other archeology undergrads, consider universities in Washington which have the most undergraduates admitted to archeology annually. More generally, the best region to study archeology is in the Mid East region with George Washington University, SUNY College at Potsdam, and Bryn Mawr College best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the best conference to study archeology is the Ivy League with Harvard University, Cornell University, and Brown University representing the conference. That said, our choice for the best university for archeology is Harvard University. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The objectively 'best' school does not have to be the 'best' school for every student. There might be a bunch of angels to consider when selecting ​university. External stuff such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might modify one's decision of where to go to college. At Authority, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are interested in which archeology college is home to the top campus, the answer is Harvard University. If you are very interested in which school boasts the top campus, we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more in order to compare every U.S. major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life&nbspand from that list, our choice for the school with the best student life for archeology is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Continue reading to discover more about our top selections. Some of our decisions will probably shock you.

If expense is a primary factor in your decision on where to go to university, you might be cautious about Brown University. Brown University&nbspappears to be our most expensive university for archeology, at least regarding out of state attendance. We have an entire list of the most expensive&nbspschools that might put the price tag at Brown University&nbspinto perspective. Additionally, you could care to know that archeology is the 125th most expensive major in the nation, with an average expense of $36,300. On a broader scale, the most costly state for archeology in the country is Rhode Island with costs at the main school, Brown University, of $57,112. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the U.S. for archeology is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Boston University with a cost of $54,720, Harvard University with a cost of $47,730, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for archeology is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790. In better news, the most affordable college for archeology is College of Charleston. Authority's comprehensive list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state attendees can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $10,200 for a degree in archeology. That price grows substantially to an average of $28,000 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our selection for the college with the best value for archeology: Harvard University. On this page you can see our comprehensive list about the colleges we see as being the best value&nbspin general. That being said, this idea is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for archeology students can cover a wide range, but two-years after leaving college students will regularly earn around $56,200. There is a lot of variation in earnings potential; top earners can rake in up to $110,200. Straight out of university, the lowest end jobs within the archeology field make $28,000, which is an alright wage. The top earning graduates from archeology have come from Harvard University&nbspand if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of archeology is pretty bad, falling in only the 11th percentile of all majors. The college with the highest composite diversity for archeology is Brown University&nbspand here you can find our general list for the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of Archeology only stands in the 6th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, in the 7th percentile. White collegians make up the largest share, 81%, of those studying archeology. Additionally, 73% of undergraduates seeking an archeology degree are women.

We have insufficient professors data for archeology to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we consider data other than simply rankings we find that the university possessing the overall best instructors for archeology is Harvard University. One will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the top examples of instructors in the country.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for archeology is Harvard University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have an extensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we do hope you believe that considering the education process through a lens primarily informed by superlatives can create issues. We at Authority encourage you to explore our more nuanced pages on different universities and peruse a few of our background pages on beneficial things to look for as you progress with your university search.
