The Archaeology Institute
The Summer 2012 Field School is just one example of the hands-on learning opportunities students enjoy at The Archaeology Institute. The institute is an educational, research and service facility concerned with the prehistoric and historic archaeological resources of the Northwest Florida region. Archaeological investigations are conducted in both terrestrial and underwater settings. The Institute is part of the Division of Anthropology and Archaeology and provides educational support to the Anthropology Department’s undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Pensacola. In addition, a Master of Art degree in Historic Preservation is offered in cooperation with the Department of History. Students obtain extensive training and hands on experience in classroom, field school, laboratory and fieldwork settings.
