Culminating projects in Cultural Resources Management, including theses, starred papers, and portfolios, focus on preservation, conservation, and stewardship of the finite and quickly disappearing record of the human past. Culminating projects may be based on field, lab, or literature analysis or data synthesis. Cultural Resources Management is administered by the Anthropology Program in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
