Students researching artifacts related to the Luna settlement

At the University of West Florida, we see change and rush forward.

For 50 years, the best and brightest minds have gathered at UWF, connecting coursework to careers in business and education; training professionals for an ever-changing health care landscape; preparing future scientists with hands-on experiences in the lab and preserving history through a world-class archaeology program. What started out as a ripple in 1967 has grown into a wave - of innovation, collaboration, creativity. Or, as it’s known at UWF - Sea Change.

Based in Pensacola with additional locations in the region, UWF is home to five academic colleges, offering a variety of bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, as well as specialist degrees and a doctorate in education. With a student population of nearly 13,000, UWF is committed to a close-knit academic experience and is consistently named a top “military friendly” University. In 2016, UWF added football to its roster of NCAA Division II sports.

A driver of economic impact in Northwest Florida and beyond, UWF generates approximately $1.47 billion in total annual salesacross the Florida economy.

At UWF, we see change coming, faster than ever, and we’re ready for it - because we’re leading it.
