And what would you recommend I minor in that would be useful to this career?"This great old schoolroom is in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and the photo was taken by one of its former students, Just Jane.
The terrific thing about archaeology is you can minor in almost anything and find it useful in the field of study. So, I recommend to anybody at your stage in life is that you start preparing to study archaeology right now, before you get to college. Don't have any classes in archaeology in high school? That's okay--hardly anybody does. But you can still get a leg up on your career. I've assembled a bunch of suggestions for people in high school who want to get a head start.
Once you've learned a little bit more about the field--and what you like to do--then you'll be better able to search for a school, pick an appropriate major/minor combination and build a career in the area of your choice.
