In most cases a minimum of an undergraduate degree in a suitable subject is required, and to work in field archaeology practical experience is preferred. The degree in which you need for a career in archaeology depends on what part of the world you are studying in. In the United States archaeology lies in one of the four branches of Anthropology as applied by Franz Boas, thus you would typically get an anthropology degree with a concentration in archaeology. In the UK on the other hand there are specific archaeology degrees with numerous specializations (i.e. historical, biblical, Egyptology, etc.) offered at various Universities.
You will require a Ph.D. to do funded research or teach. It is often useful to gain work experience in the field you wish to pursue (be it field work or lab work) by helping an archaeologist, though you may not be able to do this until you are already an archaeology student.
