Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Master of Science in Cultural Resources Management Archaeology.

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Cultural Resources Management is about people and the places they consider important for preserving their culture and learning about the history of humankind. Anthropologists are well suited to be CRM professionals because they apply a broad understanding of human culture to bridge the past with the present. By working to conserve and understand the past, CRM efforts have meaning for modern society because people everywhere use the past to construct their identities and practice their heritage. CRM professionals are often involved at the forefront of this process. 

Our graduate students gain an in-depth understanding of the role CRM plays in modern society and will graduate prepared to become leaders in the field. Our graduate program integrates the theory and philosophy required to see the "big picture" with the practical skills needed to successfully design and manage all phases of CRM. Our students develop the knowledge, experience, confidence and credentials to either enter the workforce with a master's degree or continue on at the doctoral level.
