Archaeology is the study of the artifacts and other material remains of past human societies. Through this study the characteristics of past human technologies are revealed, as well as the time periods at which they existed. The archaeology program will focus on past cultures in two parts of the world: the North American Plains, and the Near East and adjacent Mediterranean regions. The application of natural science methodologies in the analysis of archaeological materials is an important part of archaeological research. For this reason, the Department offers both B.A. and B.Sc. programs. Students who plan to major in archaeology should consult the Head of the Department or the Undergraduate Advisor concerning their choice of courses.


Anthropology is the comprehensive study of human beings, past and present, in comparative, cross-cultural and holistic light. The Anthropology program at the University of Saskatchewan offers training that emphasizes the role of culture in human behaviour, and that exposes students to human evolutionary, environmental and language development and adaptation. The program demonstrates particular expertise in medical, environmental and applied anthropology, emphasizing Indigenous studies, globalization, the anthropology of gender, and psychological anthropology, with active research programs in local, international, urban, and Institutional contexts.
