  1. Hi everyone. I would like to know if any of you has experience with online Bachelor of Arts programs in philosophy. What was the program you were in? How was your experience? Did it help prepare you for a decent MA or PhD program? Also, how would you rank the online BA philosophy programs available as of 2019? The ones I can find are: The University of New Orleans Arizona State University University of North Carolina, Greensboro University of Illinois, Springfield Any other suggestions would be appreciated as well.
  2. Thanks for your help. At the moment, JHU only offers PhDs in ancient near eastern studies. I will definitely look into UCLA and Berkeley. I am not an American citizen. Nor British/Canadian. In terms of non-American programs, I am also thinking of places like France, Germany, Israel, etc. The Hebrew University offers an MA in Hebrew Bible and the Ancient Near East which is partly funded by the state of Israel. Since for me funding trumps everything else, that could be very appealing. France or Germany is tricky as they have a rather strict requirement on you having a BA in the same subject as t
  3. As the title suggests, I would really appreciate it if anyone can produce a list of partially or fully funded masters programs in the Ancient Near East or Assyriology. It does not have to be American programs but funding is of paramount importance. My focus is on the literature and religions of the ANE and not the archaeology so divinity schools like HDS, YDS, and UChicago are a possible route but still, it would be better to have more options. Thanks.
  4. A question: has any of you guys heard of individually tailored joint PhD programs where a student participates in more than two departments across the humanities and social sciences? It is common to have a degree jointly offered by two departments (philosophy+classics; anthropology+divinity, etc.), but what about three? Is it possible? Does it make practical sense in terms of finding employment? A few hypothetical examples: A student interested in comparing Ancient Greek and Mesopotamian literatures participating in the departments of Classics, Near Eastern Languages and Civilization
  5. If you have good German, you should go to Germany to get a MA in classical philology. It is mostly free. You pay a registration fee of 1000+ euro per semester and that's it. The total cost of living is around 13500 dollars a year. You do not need to compete with others. You will be admitted as long as one professor agrees to advise you. Tell them that you lack language training and are willing to take more time to strengthen your language skills. Somebody will definitely say yes.
  6. Hello my friends. I am currently considering applying to UChicago's MA programs. However, I am hesitant about which one to apply to. A bit of background: I previously studied political science in the US but want to transition into early Chinese history. I am a Chinese natioanal, have been reading Chinese history my whole life, and am capable of using Chinese sources in my own writing (I am currently a columnist). However, I did not take a single class on Chinese history in my undergraduate years because I thought they were simply too easy. The consequence is that I have no way of proving my kn
