  1. You all have given me alot to think about and I feel more encouraged. I really appreciate it!
  2. Again, thanks alot for replying with your suggestions. I haven't read Graham Furniss' work yet. In regards to Bruce Hall, are you suggesting that I try for UC Berkeley? After staying home for so long, I'm still a little shaky on my confidence level.
  3. Thank you for the above advice. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I am interested in many topics, but I am especially interested in exploring literature and scholarship among Hausa women. My MA is in Health Promotion. I have and continue to make strides at knowing my way around the histiography but acknowledge that I have almost no training or background in history from a formal perspective. From what I can see, I am currently interested in possibly working with Dr. Lydon. It seems she is currently on sabbatical.
  4. Hello all, I'm new to the forum. I really want to get into the African History PhD program at UCLA. My BS and MA have nothing to do with history, and I have spent a significant amount of time staying home with my 3 children. I am familiar with the PhD life since my husband spent the majority of our marriage working on his phd in math. I would need to retake the GRE because my scores have since expired. However, my past scores were relatively high and so was my GPA. Also, the language requirements would not be such and issue as I am practically a native speaker of an African language
