NOTE: The Cultural Resource Management Program is not accepting applications for new students at this time.

The masters degree and graduate certificate program of study in Cultural Resource Management are designed to prepare professionals for careers in the growing field of cultural resource management. The program provides students with the knowledge, skills and values needed to help diverse communities discover, preserve and understand their cultural heritage. The program will prepare professionals to secure Federal Register status as historians, museum professionals and/or archaeologists. 

Professionals who work in Cultural Resource Management assist private and government entities in identifying cultural resources such as archaeological and historical sites, culturally or historically significant structures, and culturally significant locations or resources. 

​Students in the CRM program will learn to assess such sites and resources and develop plans for their preservation, curation, and ethical use. Students will learn the disciplinary methods and federal guidelines and regulations governing this field by taking courses in three areas but specializing in one (museum studies, anthropology/archaeology, or public history).
