Students in Applied Archaeology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania who enter the program usually hold a bachelor’s degree in anthropology, history, geography, or a related field.
Depending on your undergraduate coursework, you may be required to take courses as a condition of your admission to prepare for the program, especially an archaeological field school. You must also meet all the requirements of the graduate school and take the General Test of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) before admission.

- Get specialized training in technical skills such as human osteology, faunal analysis, artifact analysis, and geophysical survey, in which you use electrical resistivity, magnetometers, and ground-penetrating radar.
- Learn subjects critical for professional archaeologists, including preservation law, ethics, business, and archaeological methods.
- Develop the writing skills to prepare technical reports and publications for the general public.
- Complete a thesis, which may be in the form of a cultural resource management (CRM) report or a policy study of a cultural resource issue.
