Credits can be applied to History, Religious Studies, or Liberal Studies. This Education Abroad program is directed by Dr. Robert McEachnie of the UNC Charlotte Department of History, students on this study abroad course fully participate in every aspect of the archaeological project: excavation, examination, collection of finds, cleaning, and material processing. There is also a week of guided touring as part of the student program. For 2019, Drs. Diane Zablotsky and Heather Smith of the Levine Scholars Program will co-lead the program. Students can apply.
