AMEC offers several archaeological and bioarchaeological field schools, which are excavation-based and survey-based. Our archaeology field schools focus on the archaeology and bioarchaeology of the Middle East, the Caribbean, and the Southeastern US. These field schools are offered during the summer months, are taught by AMEC faculty, and are open to graduate student and undergraduate students at Mississippi State University as well as other colleges and universities. Those offered in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands and Israel are part of Mississippi State University’s Office of Study Abroad. Information, location, and specifics vary for each program, so please see the links below.
