With Dr. George Bey, not only do you have the opportunity to study the ancient Maya on campus, but you can actually explore the ruins of this past civilization at our own archaeological project in Yucatan. As his archaeology student, you will discuss the latest theories on the rise and fall of this civilization, work with millennium old artifacts in our on-campus laboratory, and excavate the temples and palaces of a civilization that rivaled that of the Greeks or Egyptians. Working with Dr. Bey is not like a National Geographic special, it is a National Geographic special. If you are interested in a career in archaeology, or just want to experience it, Millsaps and Dr. Bey will provide you opportunities unrivaled in the U.S.
