UWF is hosting five field schools in Summer 2013: three terrestrial archaeology, one combined maritime/terrestrial archaeology, and one forensic anthropology field school. For further information about each field school, see the links below.
Location: All of the field schools are based out of Pensacola.
Credits: The archaeology field schools are offered for 3-9 credit hours at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate majors in anthropology at UWF must take it for 9 credit hours as per the degree requirements. Undergraduate students from other universities may take it for 3-9 credit hours. Graduate students have to take it for 3 credit hours, but may take it for 6 to meet financial aid requirements, although only 3 will count toward degree requirements. The forensic anthropology field school is offered for 3 credits hours at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Prerequisites: Undergraduates must be at least a sophomore. A prerequisite for all the field schools is Principles of Archaeology (ANT 3101) with a grade of ‘C’ or better. A similar course taken at other institutions may meet this requirement. Email the appropriate project director for more information.
Application: All students must apply online and will be notified regarding their status by the dates indicated below.
Registration: Students accepted for the undergraduate session will be registered by the Department under the appropriate course numbers provided below.Â Students accepted for the graduate-level supervisory field school will be registered by the Department for ANG6824, Advanced Archaeological Field Methods.
Field School Preference: Students applying for a terrestrial field school should indicate a field school preference on the application (Colonial Frontiers, Arcadia, or “No Preference”). In the event that one of the terrestrial field schools exceeds its enrollment capacity, some students with a preference for that field school will be assigned to the other field school. Final terrestrial field school assignments for all successful applicants will be made by the Department.
