CAS in Cultural Heritage Preservation

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Certificate of Advanced Study in Cultural Heritage Preservation is a 15-credit hour, graduate-level certificate designed for students currently pursuing another graduate degree or as post-baccalaureate work. This program is only offered to campus-based students. Housed in the iSchool, the program is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Information Studies, Anthropology, and Museum Studies. Recipients of the Cultural Heritage certificate are provided with an interdisciplinary grounding in the preservation of cultural heritage. This includes opportunities to focus on such areas as: the application of digital approaches to heritage preservation; the basics of historic site preservation; the management and interpretation of cultural resources; and the collection, preservation, and curation of archaeological artifacts, archival materials, ethnographic data, and museum collections. The certificate program is intended to prepare students to work with organizations such as libraries, museums, National Parks, and State and local agencies in preserving cultural resources. The Certificate of Advanced Study in Cultural Heritage Preservation requires the completion of 15 credits: 3 units of required courses, 6-9 units of elective courses, 3-6 units of internships. Because students enter the program with different educational and experiential backgrounds, they will work with program advisors to determine the most appropriate ratio of coursework to internships.
