Coursework in archaeology was offered by the Departments of Classical Studies and Anthropology prior to the establishment of an archaeology program in 1986. Beginning in the 1986-1987 academic year, students were able to complete an Interdisciplinary Studies major or minor with a concentration in archaeology. Jeffrey S. Soles of the Department of Classical Studies served as the first chairman of the Archaeology Program.

In the 1990-1991 academic year, the Archaeology Program became part of the Special Programs in Liberal Studies, a unit within the College of Arts and Sciences.
