The UWF Graduate Anthropological Association was founded in Fall 2007 with the goal of assisting anthropology graduate students in the procurement of funds for travel to academic conferences. Since its inception, the GAA has surpassed this original mission by fostering peer and faculty communication.
Currently, the GAA has a number of objectives. Its primary goal is to better the educational experience of the graduate students in the department. To that end, the GAA meets once a month to discuss past and current issues and possible solutions. The GAA President serves as a liaison for the graduate students in faculty meetings. The three departmental subfields - archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology - are represented by individual, elected, graduate student officers. The association also strives to raise community awareness in anthropologically-related areas and participates in community and university events whenever possible. In addition, the GAA raises funds for those graduate students who are unable to get university funding for participation in conferences relating to their field. When possible, the association discusses fund raising options and opportunities. For more information, please email one of the officers listed above.
Current or accepted graduate students with UWF Argonet accounts can add themselves to the GAA Argus group for association emails and postings.

The Experimental Archaeology Club is dedicated to recreating the past endeavors, experiences, and methods of production that went in to the artifact assemblage we encounter as archaeologists. This understanding will allow us to create a more accurate picture of the lives of the people we study. We also seek to broaden our contacts within the field by attending professional conferences and presenting on the work we do. Through fund-raising and our school budget we help provide students access to the materials necessary to take on a project that interests their specific focus.
