About

The Department of Anthropology offers a Master of Arts degree under the close direction of 13 Anthropology and Archaeology faculty with specializations in Archaeology (terrestrial and maritime), Cultural Anthropology, and Biological Anthropology.

Overview

The degree of choice for professionals in anthropology and historical archaeology, an M.A. is required for professional positions in government and private firms. The primary objectives of our Masters program are to prepare graduates to begin successful working careers and to enter doctoral programs.

We have 80+ active graduate students, and we are growing! Student-centered research is our specialty, and we have continuous opportunities for students' professional development in the Anthropology Department and Archaeology Institute. 90% of our Masters graduates are employed in their field or are accepted into doctorate programs.

The graduate specialization in Anthropology focuses on providing students with more general graduate-level coursework in all three anthropological subfields offered at UWF, including a minimum of two courses each in biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and archaeology. In addition, research design and a proseminar are required, along with three unspecified electives and a 3-hour minimum of enrolled thesis research. This track is appropriate for students who plan to pursue careers or further graduate studies in archaeology, biological anthropology, or cultural anthropology, including archaeology students who seek more general anthropological coursework than is available in the Historical Archaeology specialization.
