Thank you for your interest in our graduate program, but due to recent budget cuts at the state level that impact all departments at Missouri State University, we will not be accepting students into our graduate program for the 2017-2018 academic year. However, we are in the process of establishing a Graduate Certificate Program in Cultural Resource Management Archaeology, which may be up and running as soon as this fall. Please watch this website for more information or contact Dr. Scott Worman if you are interested in pursuing this possibility or discussing the graduate program (FScottWorman@missouristate.edu).
