SAA’s anthropology, archaeology, and history programs are an exciting way for students to receive hands-on and in-person education in some of the most historically and culturally rich destinations in the world.

Students will visit some of the most famous archaeological sites while also interacting intimately with locals to learn the customs and traditions that shaped ancient civilizations that are sometimes still practiced today.

In our history programs, students will tour the heart of countries and major cities to discover the rich past and key events of your destination of choice.
