Archaeology studies in different countries

In my country, archaeology is not an undergraduate program. Rather, for one to take archaeology, one must first complete a bachelor's degree in anything, and then one can study to get a diploma in archaeology. One can then opt to earn a Master's degree and maybe even a PhD. In short, archaeology is a graduate program in my country. Is it like that in all countries? I think it's a good idea to take an undergraduate course in another but related field, such as anthropology or even history because it provides one with a more solid backbone that shall prepare one for further studies in the field of archaeology. I plan to take history as an undergrad first, then take up archaeology. I want to be able to work in, support, and contribute to the international archaeological community, so I want to ensure I get not only an adequate but also an excellent education (as much as possible). Is it advisable to stick to my country's system--after all, I will be based in my own country--and then perhaps study even more in other countries if I feel that it is necessary or that I want to specialize even more? Thank you!:)
