The Cultural and Environmental Resource Management graduate program at Central Washington University offers a Master of Science and is a highly interdisciplinary program with a focus on environmental, cultural, and economic resource management. The program bridges the Geography and Anthropology departments at CWU, while also drawing upon Economics and Policy. As such, the core curriculum engages students in coursework related to resource management approaches and frameworks, environmental law and policy, resource economics, conflict resolution, and various methodological approaches and techniques. The program is designed as a two-year Master’s thesis program with a requirement of 60 credits. All students take core CERM courses in the first year and then can focus on their research in their second year. We encourage students to take upper-level elective courses pertinent to their interests for their thesis research project or future careers. Successful completion of the CERM program further qualifies students for management positions in environmental, cultural, and economic resource fields who are able to promote wiser and more effective management of current and future resources. CERM graduates find competitive career tracks in Federal, State, regional and private resource management fields.
