Master of Science in Maritime Archaeology and Conservation
The MS program is a professional degree designed to prepare students for employment in maritime museums, cultural resource management firms, (including companies working with the offshore oil industry), and federal, state, or similar government agencies.
The curriculum is designed to allow students to complete the MS in Maritime Archaeology and Conservation in a two-year framework. All students are required to take five core courses, as well as a wide variety of elective courses. All students are required to write a thesis in order to complete the degree. A thesis-based graduate degree is essential for many employment opportunities, and is also a prerequisite for being listed on the Register of Professional Archaeologists (RPA).
