Maritime Archaeology Certificate
The Maritime Archaeology certificate program is an interdisciplinary field of study that merges knowledge in maritime history and archaeology to focus on how humans of the past interfaced with the world’s waterways. The certificate helps prepare students for graduate school in this field. Through this program, students with no diving experience will gain advanced diving qualifications and basic maritime archaeological skills that will allow them to assist in maritime archaeological projects.
What you’ll learn

Students are required to complete emergency response and first aid courses, and three semesters of diving class, including Beginner, Master, and Scientific Diving classes. Upon completion, students will have diving qualifications and basic maritime archaeological skills to prepare them for graduate school programs in maritime archaeology and to assist in maritime archaeological projects.
Classes are offered through the Department of Anthropology and the School of Applied Health.
