Cultural Heritage Management (CHM) is defined as anthropological, archaeological, and historical research carried out to document, preserve, and protect significant places, properties, and objects of cultural heritage. CHM offers high-quality employment opportunities for Anthropology graduates in the private sector and in federal, state, and local governments. A certificate in CHM will provide students with the specific training necessary to be successful in the field, and will make them more attractive to potential employers. The completion of a certificate program will give students an edge in today’s highly competitive labor market. The program includes three areas of concentration-heritage and history, cultural resources management, and management-that offers students the opportunity to receive training in different aspects of the discipline. The training for the certificate program will encourage students to engage in interdisciplinary research and community outreach activities that are consistent with the university’s strategic plan.
