Applied Archaeology

The Applied Archaeology Certificate provides an opportunity for you to gain knowledge of and experience in Cultural Resources Management (CRM), Public Archaeology, and Heritage Archaeology. Cultural resources management is focused on identifying, examining, preserving, and/or recovering archaeological sites, contexts, and remains. Public archaeology is concerned with educating, interacting and sharing with, and involving the public regarding archaeological research and preservation efforts. Heritage archaeology involves the engagement of stakeholder’s in the preservation and presentation of an area’s archaeological sites and landscapes. All three areas represent significant and growing areas of employment in archaeology today.
