UCLA Archaeology Field Program

With many program types and locations available to UCLA Archaeology Field Program participants, we recommend that participants ask four questions before deciding what program is best for them:

1) What type of program best fits my needs?

2) What region of the world is interesting to me?

3) How many credit units will I get and will my university accept them?

4) How will I pay for the program?
