UWF's field schools allow students to gain hands on experience in Forensic Anthropology, Terrestrial and Maritime Archaeology. Information about our 2022 field schools will be coming soon!
Forensic Anthropology Field School
The Forensic Anthropology Field School will be held on the UWF Pensacola campus. The major goal of the 5-week field school is to train students in standard forensic methods for the discovery, documentation, and recovery of human skeletal remains.
