Program Description:

Resource Management is an interdisciplinary graduate program offered through Central Washington University's Department of Geography and Land Studies and the Department of Anthropology and Museum Studies, leading to a Master of Science degree. Students gain knowledge and technical skills in policy analysis and formulation, management practices, and resource appraisal and evaluation. The program emphasizes the holistic understanding of problems and opportunities associated with integrating and managing cultural and natural resources. Students take a common interdisciplinary core of coursework, linking cultural and natural resources, as they pursue more specialized interests through electives and thesis research in topics such as watershed analysis, cultural-resource-management archaeology, habitat management, or geographical-information systems applications. Normally, at least five academic quarters of continuous full-time study will be required for completion of coursework, field experience and research, and thesis writing.
