Despite many overlapping themes, applied anthropology and historic preservation are very specific in their scope. Yet, as issues related to global heritage grow more complex, there is an increased demand for professionals who can transcend the multiple aspects of preservation and heritage. The new degree program positions students interested in pursuing a career in cultural heritage with a unique and competitive advantage; a comprehensive insight into both tangible heritage, such as architecture, artifacts and natural forms; and the intangible resources of society and culture. The experiential foundation offered by the two programs—including regional and international field studies, excavations and the use of LiDAR technology—offers the practical knowledge needed to succeed in an increasingly competitive and changing global market.
