The Division of Anthropology and Archaeology includes the disciplines of anthropology, archaeology, and sociology. The Division consists of four integrated units:
The Department of Anthropology boasts 8 full-time faculty teaching a wide variety of courses in the subdisciplines of archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Students can earn a Bachelor's or Master's degree in anthropology from the Department. We specialize in hands-on opportunities and prepare students for graduate study and for employment in both the private sector and government agencies.
The Department also offers Master's degree where students can choose from two programs: general anthropology (archaeology, biological, cultural) and historical archaeology. The primary objectives of our master's program are to prepare graduates to be successful in the workforce and to enter doctoral programs. The master's degree consists of both coursework and a thesis capstone project. Over 90 percent of our graduates are employed in their field or are accepted into doctoral programs.
University of West Florida archaeologists can now re-create the past. Using a NextEngine 3D scanner and two MakerBot 3D printers, assistant professors Dr. Kristina Killgrove and Dr. Ramie Gougeon and their graduate students are working to digitize artifacts and bones from the Division of Anthropology and Archaeology's collections. Their work in the Virtual Bones & Artifacts Lab -- Virtebra @ UWF -- is pushing the boundaries of archaeology.
The Department of Anthropology at the University of West Florida, a comprehensive/regional institution, invites applications for a 9-month, tenure track assistant professor.
