The Summer Archaeological Field school requires students to be in the field up to 30 hours a week. Changing the credits hours (to 3-6 credits) reflects the actual time and work they do in the field. A variable credit field school is the norm within the SUS. This is a summer-only course; we would like it to be effective Summer A of 2013.This course maybe repeated up to 12 credit hours.
