Underwater Archaeology Skills, Training, and Opportunities in U.S. Colleges: The 2017 ACUA University Benchmarking Survey

Author(s): Arlice Marionneaux

Year: 2018

Summary

The Advisory Council on Underwater Archaeology developed a series of three Benchmarking Surveys to understand how students, professors, and employers perceive and prioritize "basic" underwater archaeological skills. The ACUA surveys are intended to guide students, faculty, and employers as new generations of archaeologists enter the profession. The second survey, completed in 2017, was directed to university faculty in the United States, and received fourteen responses from eight universities. The survey asked professors to rank the skills and qualifications most emphasized in their respective programs, in hopes of revealing broad and/or university specific patterns of emphasis and training. This panel reports the 2017 survey findings, and is comprised of professors from seven universities. Discussants will give an overview of the specific opportunities afforded by their university programs, and provide their opinion on the value of various qualifications and training.
