The Center for Heritage Resource Studies is committed to providing professional and continuing educational opportunities in the field of heritage resource studies.  The Department of Anthropology at the University of Maryland offers a Masters in Applied Anthropology (MAA Program), through which Masters students gain unparalleled opportunities for internships and post-graduate employment in a variety of heritage-related organizations.

Working with the University of Marylandís Office of Continuing and Extended Education and the Study Abroad Office, the Center also offers courses and training seminars for students and professionals both on-campus and off, including an NSF-REU (National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates) field school in New Philadelphia, Illinois and a summer study tour in Belgium.  Our courses are taught by University of Maryland faculty and Center affiliates and partners from a broad range of heritage management agencies and organizations representing a wide range of disciplines, including cultural anthropology, archaeology, historic preservation, community development, environmental sciences, and others.  We are continually working to expand our course offerings.
