Cultural Resources Management (M.S.)

Graduate Certificate


Complete admission and program requirements are found in the University Catalog.

The 18-credit graduate certificate provides an alternative graduate-level education in cultural resources management to individuals who wish to teach without doing fieldwork, working professionals seeking continuing education who choose not to complete a research thesis.

The program can be taken on-campus in St. Cloud or from a distance through a synchronous online connection with an on-campus class.

The certificate program is comprised of course work and does not require a field school, culminating research project or an internship.

An undergraduate degree in anthropology is preferred but not required. Students entering the program without an undergraduate anthropology degree will be required to complete an online tutorial that will serve as an introduction to critical anthropological concepts that you will use in your graduate-level coursework. 

Gainful Employment

Certain undergraduate and graduate certificates at St. Cloud State University prepare students for employment in specific fields and do not result in a degree. Federal law requires publication of data associated with those programs of study, including approximate program costs, program length, and employment statistics. The Minnesota State Chancellor's office has provided this report containing the aforementioned information for all required programs.

Applicants to this program must complete and attach the Gainful Employment Acknowledgement form as a part of their application for admission.
