  1. For future reference, does anyone know which Visual Studies programs are known for providing the best funding? I understand PhD programs are more likely to provide a full ride, but are there programs with good funding for MAs as well? UBuffalo, I believe, but not sure any others.
  2. Hey guys it's getting quite late and I keep waiting. I haven't come accross many other applicants from this program, is any of you out there waiting? If so are you in the dark as well?
  3. Hello, I've been offered a place in the MA Art History at the UofT. My first choice remains McGill, however. I was wondering if anyone here has done their graduate studies in art history at McGill and the UofT, and could help me make a choice, but mostly give me feedback about the art history department of both universities. I should also note that I still haven't received a response from McGill, and getting quite anxious about it. But if I got in at the UofT, shouldn't I get accepted at McGill too? As they are both the best universities in Canada. Thanks
  4. Hi all, Although I am just starting a doctoral program in the fall in Literature, I can't but help feel a bit terrified as far as the job market is concerned...tenure-track positions are dwindling, and job posts for Humanities professors are scarce (been looking at job posts on the Chronicle every now and then out of curiosity). It seems like schools are looking more into hiring adjuncts and instructors, which leaves me questioning at times if getting a PhD is even valued anymore. I guess my question is how are new PhDs in the Humanities coping with the uncertain future? To be clear, I
  5. Greetings all, As one of the group (legion?) of people admitted to Chicago's one-year MAPH, I thought it might be a good idea to open a thread for discussion of the program for those of us who are even remotely considering it be an option (as well as those who have been through it/ have helpful advice to give). I know there is already a thread going about one-year MA's in general, but I didn't want to hijack it with a discussion that was narrowed to one program. Also, I have discussed this with a few individuals (thanks!) but I figured it would be helpful for anyone to be able to chime i
  6. Hi all, I have a few programs I'm applying to that don't fit neatly into any other category so I made one up. They include Emory's ILA program, UC-Irvine's Visual Studies program, Berkeley's Performance Studies, and Duke's Literature Program (I know, I know, check Literature. But I think Duke's program is a little bit unique). Anyone else applying to interdisciplinary programs for Fall 2012 and waiting to hear back?
  7. What are the duties of a GSR at a UC (in the humanities/social sciences)? I can't seem to find an answer to that.

    MA vs PhD

    Hello all. My question concerns the benefits of obtaining a History MA before applying to a PhD History program. I finished my undergrad degree in May 2010, and it was always my plan to wait a few years after graduating before applying to graduate school. I'm not sure why, but that was always the way I envisioned doing it. Grad school has always been in my thoughts however, and I plan to spend the next year applying for the Fall 2013 term. I guess I don't really have a more specific question other than, 'What are the benefits and drawbacks of each path?' Applying to an MA program fir
  9. Hello - wondering if anyone who has some experience with studying in Quebec and the FQRSC (provincial funding) could help me out... I just moved here to start my PhD (from another province), so I know I'm not eligible this year. But, in reading their regulations, they want a copy of your Quebec RAMQ health card. However, the RAMQ states on their website that students aren't eligible for health care, that they are covered under the plan from their province of origin (in my case, OHIP). Is this just a matter of my deciding whether I want to be a Quebec or Ontario resident on paper (a
  10. I am applying to PhD programs in English Lit, and my interests are medieval / women's studies / Jewish studies / history of the book. I am trying to narrow it down to ten programs to which I will apply. I already have an MA and a pretty darn specific idea of what I am looking for regarding advising, research, and dissertation topic, involving the above topics. Therefore, I am considering the breadth of advising potential and resources across these areas and giving special considerations to universities with strong Medieval Studies, History of the Book, Women's and Gender Studies, and Jew
