Online Seminars

SAA’s Online Seminar Series offers free and fee-based professional development opportunities designed for students and archaeologists seeking to enhance their skill sets or knowledge base.

One-hour seminars are free to SAA members. Knowledge Series seminars, also free to members, are unique opportunities within the Online Seminar Series to hear from some of the most prominent archaeologists in our field. All lectures are delivered remotely through the WebEx videoconferencing software.

Registration Information

Registration for free online seminars opens approximately two weeks prior to the course date. Each free, one-hour online seminar will accommodate 75 computer connections or "seats." Those online seminars will be recorded and available to watch in the Member Center's Online Seminar Archive for two years. Knowledge Series seminars will be available in the Archive indefinitely. The Archive is available only to SAA members.

Registration for two-hour, fee-based online seminars opens as soon as the course description is posted. Cancellations and refunds are allowed up to 14 days before the online seminar. All cancellations are subject to a $25 processing fee. All fee-based seminars will accommodate 40 "seats." These seminars will be recorded and made available to those who registered for up to one week after.

For all seminars, register by clicking the button next to the seminar description. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis and will remain open until seats are filled or until a week before the seminar. Participants must have an Internet connection and speakers (either computer or phone) in order to participate.

Primary registrants will receive a confirmation email immediately after registration and an invitation email to the online seminar about a week before the course date.

All times are in the Eastern Time Zone.

Group Registration

Two or more individuals sharing a single computer connection or "seat" may qualify for the group rate. Only the primary registrant is required to be an SAA member to receive the SAA group-member pricing.

When registering groups, the primary registrant must submit the names and email addresses of each group participant in a spreadsheet before the course date to This is to ensure that all participants receive a certificate of completion and RPA credit (if applicable). We regret that we cannot add group participants after the seminar. Only registered participants will receive certificates of completion.
