Success After Wooster
Many students take courses in archaeology simply because of an interest in the subject, but some do so in preparation for careers in teaching, museum curatorship, or field archaeology. For example:
- David Massey '04 did GIS (Geographic Information Systems) analysis for his junior and senior I.S., and now works for an archaeological consulting firm as their GIS specialist.
- Michael DiPaolo '99 did his junior I.S. at the Lewes Historical Society in Delaware, joined the society after graduation, and rose to the position of executive director.
Faculty recommend that students with a professional interest in archaeology secure a broad background in the liberal arts and anticipate the need for specialized training at the graduate level.
