Advanced Certificate in Egyptology

The Advanced Certificate in Egyptology program allows students to examine this history, culture, society, and identity of those living in Ancient Egypt.  Students will have the opportunity to examine cultural development and international connections through a variety of sources, such as art, archaeology, and textual evidence.  These courses explore the importance of the past on the present, by applying anthropological, historical, and art historical theory as well as a multi-disciplinary perspective. 

Certificates may be earned by regularly matriculated or extended learning students and denote successful completion of a prescribed program of study designed to:
