Cultural Resources Management Archaeology (M.S.)

Distance Learning


The distance learning component of our graduate program is targeted to CRM professionals living outside Minnesota and working in locations without access to a career-appropriate university program. 

Examples include federal and tribal employees who are unable to leave their locations and state or contract archaeologists living outside of Minnesota. 

Enrolling as a distance learning student opens up an opportunity to obtain the graduate degree they otherwise would not have the chance to pursue. However, being a distance student comes with challenges that a traditional on-campus student does not face:

  • Class scheduling
  • Technological requirements
  • The need for a support network
  • Access to research material
  • A review process that can be used for a final culminating project like a research thesis 

Distance students may enroll either full time or part time. Financial aid requires specific minimum credits for enrollment. Contact the Financial Aid office for updated information.
