The Department of Anthropology offers graduate education for students with an interest in archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Faculty members are concentrated on research in the greater Southeastern United States, Mesoamerica, the Mediterranean, and Southeast Asia. Course work and research experiences are available in prehistoric and historic archaeology, underwater archaeology, geoarchaeology, zooarchaeology, environmental archeology, climate change and cultural heritage, and osteology.
The Florida State University, through the Department of Anthropology, is the host institution for the Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC), which is responsible for archaeological research and collections from U.S. National Park Service installations throughout the Southeastern United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The SEAC collections exceed three million items and span the period from Paleoindian to the twentieth century. SEAC's offices and laboratories are located in Innovation Park, southwest of the main campus.
As the capital of the state, Tallahassee also is home to the Department of State, which is responsible for cultural resources in Florida. The Florida Master Site File, the Bureau of Archaeological Research, the National Register of Historic Places, and Florida Folklife Programs are administered by the Department of State. The U.S. Forest Service, the State of Florida Park Service, and the Florida Public Archaeology Network have offices in Tallahassee. Students have found internships and employment in all these agencies.
Training and field experience are available in archaeology field and lab methods (terrestrial and underwater), biological anthropology, and forensic sciences. Programs sponsored by other Florida State University departments of interest to anthropology students include courses offered in Classical Archaeology (Department of Classics), Geographical Information Systems (Department of Geography), computational forensics (Scientific Computing), historical administration (Department of History), Museum and Cultural Heritage Studies (Department of Art History), ethnomusicology (College of Music), international and multicultural education (College of Education), Digital/Data Humanities (Program in Interdisciplinary Humanities), and Emergency Management and Homeland Security (Center for Disaster Risk Policy).
To remain eligible for an assistantship after the first academic year, and in each subsequent year, a student must perform the assigned duties satisfactorily as determined by the Graduate Program Director and maintain a "good standing" status. The department's criteria for "good standing" are:
- the student must not have received a grade below a "B" in any anthropology course;
- the student must have a satisfactory GA performance evaluation;
- the student may not have any incomplete grades older than one semester; and
- the student must pass the departmental master's comprehensive examinations on the first attempt.
Master's students who are not in good standing are not eligible for continued support as a graduate assistant beyond their initial 9-month appointment. In other words, master's students who are not in good standing after their first two semesters in the graduate program will no longer be eligible for departmental funding.
Assistantships are subject to the Constitution and laws of the State of Florida and the United States, the regulations of the University, and the Collective Bargaining Agreement between Florida State University and the United Faculty of Florida - Florida State University - Graduate Assistants United (UFF-FSU-GAU). All graduate assistants at FSU work under the Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiated by the UFF-FSU-GAU and the Florida State University Board of Trustees. UFF-FSU-GAU is the labor union certified as the exclusive bargaining agent for graduate assistants at FSU.

Course Work Requirements
Students should review all college-wide degree requirements summarized in the "College of Arts and Sciences" section of this Graduate Bulletin. Each student seeking a master's degree in the Department of Anthropology must satisfy the following specific course requirements:
Completion of a minimum of thirty-one semester hours of graduate course credits, to include twenty-four hours of graded graduate credit with a "B–" or better in each course (i.e., not to include courses taken S/U). Eighteen hours must be anthropology courses and all hours must be 5000-level courses. Special permission may be given to credit 4000-level courses toward this requirement in cases where there is not a 5000-level equivalent. The maximum number of credit hours for the Anthropology master's degree is 70.
- Each student is required to take the following core courses:
- ANG 5117 Core Seminar in Archaeology (3)
- ANG 5493 Core Seminar in Cultural Anthropology (3)
- ANG 5513 Core Seminar in Physical Anthropology (3)
- ANG 5002 Proseminar (1) should be taken during the first semester of the student's graduate studies or as soon thereafter as possible.
- For the MA, completion of six semester hours of graduate credit in the humanities at the 5000 level. For the MS, completion of six hours in a related science field is recommended but not required.
Students must also register for ANG 8966: Master's Comprehensive Examination (0) during the Spring semester of their first year in the program.
Completion of ANG 5971: Master's Thesis (1–6) (minimum of six semester hours; a maximum of six hours may be counted toward completion of credit hour requirements for the degree).
During the semester in which the thesis is completed, students must register for ANG 5976: Master's Thesis Defense (0).
Fieldwork: FSU Anthropology faculty offer terrestrial and underwater field schools and expect and encourage graduate students to enroll in them.
Underwater Archaeology: If a student wishes to do underwater archaeological research, they will need to be an American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) diver with FSU. If the student is already an AAUS diver at their current institution, they will need to get a VOT (Verification of Training) from their Diving Safety Officer (DSO) transferred to FSU's DSO Chris Peters, firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Chris to start planning. If a student is not an AAUS diver already, they will need to take the scientific diving course offered in the Spring semester. To take this course, the student will need to already be certified as an open water diver with any diving agency. Contact Chris Peters (email@example.com) or Dr. Jessi Halligan (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Register of Professional Archaeologists
Students concentrating in archaeology are encouraged to read the current standards of the Register of Professional Archaeologists (RPA). It is expected that students will keep documentation of their field and lab work experiences so that they may successfully apply for certification at the completion of the master's degree. Below are the basic requirements for RPA membership. Additional information and application instructions can be found at https://rpanet.org/.
There are four basic requirements to become a member of the Register of Professional Archaeologists:
- The applicant must have an advanced degree (such as an MA, MS, PhD, or DSc) from an accredited institution in archaeology, anthropology, art history, classics, history, or other germane discipline with a specialization in archaeology.
- As part of that advanced degree, the applicant must have designed and executed an archaeological study and have reported on that research in the form of a master's thesis and/or PhD dissertation. The thesis or dissertation must show a substantive data analysis by the applicant directed toward an explicit archaeological research problem.
- The applicant must accept the responsibilities and standards described in the Code of Conduct, Standards of Research Performance, and Grievance Procedures of the Register of Professional Archaeologists.
- If the applicant has an advanced degree as described above, but the thesis/dissertation did not include specific research on an archaeological topic and a substantive data analysis on that topic, and the applicant can document a similar research project with data analysis equivalent to that required for a thesis or dissertation through another report or publication, application can still be made by use of the documentation of such other reports or publications.
Standards of Performance
The department is responsible for ensuring that students meet standards of behavior that are congruent with expectations of the anthropological profession, as outlined in the American Anthropological Association's Principles of Professional Responsibility, the Society for American Archaeology's Principles of Archaeological Ethics, and the Register of Professional Archaeologists' Codes of Ethics & Professional Standards.
Students are also expected to comply with the FSU Academic Honor Policy (https://fda.fsu.edu/sites/g/files/imported/storage/original/application/0ab8e9de6a98c1377d68de9717988bda.pdf) and the FSU Student Conduct Code (https://dsst.fsu.edu).
Academic Performance Standards
A student is expected to:

Departmental Master's Comprehensive Examination
The faculty members of each subfield will work together to create the format and standard set of exam questions. All subfield faculty members will be responsible for grading the exams from their respective subfield within 15 days of the completion of the comprehensive exams.
Comprehensive exams will be taken as follows: Archaeology and Cultural will be taken at the beginning of the Spring semester of the student's first year (this assumes the student completed the corresponding Graduate Core Seminars the previous semester); the Physical comprehensive exam will be taken at the end of the Spring semester in which the student takes the Graduate Physical Anthropology Core Seminar.
Students will enroll in ANG 8966 Master's Comprehensive Exams in the Spring semester in which they take the exams. The Graduate Program Director will be the faculty of record.
Students must pass all three comprehensive exams to progress to the prospectus and thesis stage.
If a student fails any exam, they will have the option for one more attempt at each failed exam. The student must re-take each failed exam within 45 days of the first attempt, at a date and time agreed upon by the student, Graduate Program Director, and subfield faculty members. Faculty members of the subfield will write new exam questions for the re-take exam and grade them within 15 days.
Students who fail any portion of their comprehensive exams on their first attempt will be placed on departmental probation and will not be eligible for funding in the subsequent academic semester.
If a student fails the same comprehensive exam twice they will not be able to remain in the graduate program.
Graduate Reading Lists
Graduate reading lists in cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology are included as part of the graduate handbook.
Schedule of Classes
Usually by mid-semester, the department staff assembles the schedule of classes for the upcoming semester. The list will be available on-line by the university; however, the department version is available earlier and may be obtained from the Graduate Director.
A one-year proposed schedule of classes is included in the graduate handbook to facilitate planning. Please note however, that courses can change depending on faculty schedules and the teaching needs of the department. Some classes are offered with greater frequency than others. Many classes are on a two-to-three-year rotation.
Plan of Course Work
The student, with his or her faculty advisor, should plot out several years of course work using the two-year proposed schedule of courses. This process should begin early in the Fall semester and should be updated or revised each semester. A copy of the form is included in the graduate handbook.
The student shall choose a thesis committee consisting minimally of his or her major advisor and two additional regular faculty members, one of whom may be from another department within the university. Following the successful completion of the comprehensive examination, the student will present, within three months, a thesis prospectus to be approved and signed by his or her committee and placed on file in the department. This prospectus will contain a description of the proposed research and whatever other information and materials the student's committee deems appropriate. The student will work with his/her committee to complete the thesis and meet for an oral defense of the thesis.
Graduate Students with an Interest in Underwater Archaeology
Underwater archaeology at FSU is focused upon the discovery, excavation, and interpretation of inundated terrestrial sites, and therefore is methodologically oriented towards geoarchaeology and earth sciences research.
Students entering the Department of Anthropology to earn the Master of Arts or Master of Science degree are advised that courses in underwater archaeology are available, but these courses and technical preparation in this specialty will require additional time in the degree program. The usual course load for graduate students is twelve credit hours per semester. Most courses provide three hours credit, but techniques and field courses may carry more credit.
A minimum of thirty-one semester hours is required for the MA or MS degree. Students with no previous experience in either terrestrial archaeology or diving techniques can expect to graduate with significantly more (field and dive) hours than the average student.
Students who wish to participate in diving must be certified as an AAUS Science Diver through the Academic Diving Program at FSU. Students must have current First Aid and CPR training including training in AED and Oxygen Administrator training.
Students with no previous diving preparation are advised to take a diving certification course during the summer before admission to graduate studies at Florida State University or to take the PEN 1136 course for elementary diving certification during the first semester of registration (Fall). Because the PEN course is a 1000-level undergraduate course, it must be taken in addition to the regular course load. Tuition waivers, available to graduate students with assistantships or fellowships, do not apply to courses at this level.
Students with basic diving certification must, after admission to graduate studies, be evaluated by the Academic Diving Program as a first step in becoming certified as an AAUS Science Diver. FSU offers the following course for students wishing to become a certified AAUS Science Diver in order to take underwater archaeology courses or to participate in underwater archaeology courses: BSC 5476C, Introduction to Scientific Diving (3).
Students with no previous terrestrial archaeological field school experience are advised to enroll in a summer field school prior to entering graduate studies at Florida State University or enroll in the department Field School in Archaeology (ANG 5824, 9 hours credit) as soon as appropriate for their courses of study.
