About this course

The Master of Arts in Applied Archaeology is a professionally oriented program designed to prepare students for middle and upper-level careers in the archaeological sector of the cultural resource management (CRM) industry.

The core of the program comprises courses in archaeology with an emphasis on combining practical experience in field and laboratory studies with an internship and research project undertaken in collaboration with a government agency or private firm that conducts archaeological investigations in the context of CRM. Students will also obtain an in-depth understanding of archaeological theory, California archaeology, and the laws, regulations, and procedures relevant to archaeology and CRM in our region.

Elective courses will enable students to pursue an interest further in history, archaeology, or historic preservation
