Get taxonomy term by slug in post on archive page

Question

I have a registered a custom post type called “projects” and assigned a taxonomy called “disciplines”. Here’s how it looks:

<?php
// Register projects cpt
function projects() {
    $labels = array(
        'name'                  => _x( 'Projects', 'Post Type General Name', 'sitename' ),
        'singular_name'         => _x( 'Project', 'Post Type Singular Name', 'sitename' ),
        'menu_name'             => __( 'Projects', 'sitename' ),
        'name_admin_bar'        => __( 'Projects', 'sitename' ),

    );
    register_post_type( 'projects', $args );

}
add_action( 'init', 'projects', 0 );

// Register disciplines taxonomy
function disciplines() {

    $labels = array(
        'name'                       => _x( 'Disciplines', 'Taxonomy General Name', 'sitename' ),
        'singular_name'              => _x( 'Discipline', 'Taxonomy Singular Name', 'sitename' ),

        'parent_item'                => __( 'Parent Item', 'sitename' ),
        'parent_item_colon'          => __( 'Parent Item:', 'sitename' ),
        'new_item_name'              => __( 'New Item Name', 'sitename' ),

    );
    register_taxonomy( 'disciplines', array( 'projects' ), $args );

}
add_action( 'init', 'disciplines', 0 );

I’ve then created an archive-projects.php page, like so:

<?php
/**

 *
 * Permalink trouble https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/basics/template-hierarchy/
 *
 * @package sitename

get_header();
?>

                            $categories = get_categories( array(
                                'taxonomy' => 'disciplines',
                                'orderby'  => 'name',
                                'order'    => 'ASC'
                            ) );
                            foreach( $categories as $category ) {

                            }
                        ?>

                    </div>

                    <div class="entry-content filter" id="images">

                        <div class="gutter-sizer"></div>

                        <?php

                            while ( have_posts() ) :
                            the_post();

                            // Get post ID - Important for pulling ACF fields from single posts
                            $post_id = get_the_ID();

                            // Get post terms
                            $terms = wp_get_post_terms( $post_id, 'disciplines' );

                        ?>

                            <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" class="filter-item <?= $terms->slug; ?>" data-category="<?= $terms->slug; ?>">

                                <figure>
                                    <?php
                                        if ( get_field('thumbnail_image', $post_id) ) {
                                            echo wp_get_attachment_image( get_field('thumbnail_image', $post_id), 'medium-square');
                                        }
                                        else {

                                        }
                                    ?> 
                                </figure>

                        endif;

            </article>

        </main><!-- #main -->

    </div><!-- #primary -->

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

</div><!-- .has-sidebar -->

<?php get_footer(); ?>

I’m trying to get the taxonomy term by slug for each post class and data attribute, but the method I’ve used isn’t working. I’ve followed this documentation as a guide.

What am I doing wrong here?
