Fascinated with ancient Egypt?

Cal State San Bernardino now has a certificate for that.

The university’s Department of History is launching a new Egyptology program for undergraduates and the community.

Ancient artifacts from the university’s Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art will be used along with archaeological data from surveys and excavations at the ancient Egyptian amethyst mining region Wadi el-Hudi as part of the program, a news release states.

While all students will study from a variety of Egyptologists, some will have the opportunity to travel to Egypt for a study or work abroad experience, or conduct Egyptological internships in museums or archives.

Kate Liszka, the Pamela and Benson Harer Fellow in Egyptology and an assistant professor of history at the university, said in the release that students will learn to debate, interpret, research and write history from diverse and incomplete sources.

The certificate will help those interested in ancient Egypt, K-12 teachers who want to incorporate Egypt into their lessons and museum docents, among others, Liszka said in the release.
