  1. I am looking into one year (or even two year) Master's programs that are interdisciplinary, where students can create individualized study programs to fit their goals. Because I am interested in the social sciences, especially sociology and anthropology, this program seems like a good fit. However, I am looking to explore similar programs that have the same level of prestige, academic reputation, rigor, etc.
  2. What are some interdisciplinary MA programs similar to the MAPSS one at UChicago?
  3. What are your thoughts on Post-bacc programs for Anthropology? I know Columbia and UPenn for example offer Post-baccalaureate Studies/ Graduate Foundations programs for non-med disciplines such as Anthropology. I am wondering if it is worth it to pursue for someone like me, who is interested in pursuing an MA in Anthropology but has never taken an Anthro class in my life.
  4. I just recently graduated this past spring with a degree in Film & Media Studies (with a focus on journalism). Because my major was an interdisciplinary program and because I went to a liberal arts university, I was able to take classes in different departments and connect patterns among various ideas. I took many Sociology classes, which I not only did well in, but also loved. However, over time I have realized that the Anthropology perspective is more suitable for me. Additionally, I have much extracurricular experience in the world of journalism, and I’ve found that long-form journalism has ethnographic elements. I hope to pursue graduate school in Anthropology (perhaps Sociocultural or Applied) as I feel it will give me the proper foundation in order to understand other cultures, and provide me with the skills to be a deeper critical thinker, better writer on culture, and more. I am also interested in potentially pursuing either a career in international reporting or user research, which I feel a Master’s in Anthro will help me succeed in (I'm not interested in a PhD program at this time). I hope to enroll in a grad program that is a combination of practice and theory, and I am interested in doing fieldwork. Do you have any advice for me? What programs should I look into?
