Summary

Many cultural/heritage resource management professionals struggle to boost research excellence in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. The new master’s level professional program in Heritage Resource Management (HRM) under development at Simon Fraser University provides junior C/HRM practitioners with opportunities to enhance their professional tool kit and boost their research credentials. Our survey of traditional and online HRM master’s offerings identified 16 comparable programs. We review these programs in terms of admission standards, course offerings, and graduation requirements. We also surveyed recent M.A. graduates from SFU archaeology, prospective students for the proposed program, and likely employers to identify their specific interests and preferences. The survey results provide the guiding principles for a proposed M.A. program that integrates a) online and traditional classroom instruction; b) recent B.A. graduates and more seasoned professionals; and c) coursework in HRM research design, professional practice, and business management.
