Hello, I'm very interested in the Msc Visual, Material and Museum Anthropology program at Oxford. I want to apply next year. Has anyone on this forum studied this particular field at Oxford ? What was your experience ? I worked for several years for art/fashion publications directly after graduating from high school, which prompted my interest in the art world. I'm currently studying sociology/anthropology at a university in Paris where I have great grades. I'm passionate about what I'm studying and would love to further my knowledge of the artistic world while mixing it with an anthropological perspective. Do I have chances to get into this program ?
Hey guys! I've been working on my SOP for PhD (BA holder) in cultural anthropology for over a month now and the more I read it, the less I believe in it. I'm on a tight turn around (Dec 1st) and could really use some guidance! The one program requires a 500 word SOP/Personal statement and the other wants a 1000 SOP + 500 words on what I assume is a personal statement. If anyone would be wiling to take a look please send me a message and I'll get you what I have. Also, good luck to everyone out there who is nearing the end of their application process, you can do this (simultaneously trying to tell myself the same😅) !!
I am thinking of applying to PhD Studies in the next maybe 2 years. What might be a good strategic move for someone with both a BSW and and MSW (non clinical)? I want to go to a school with a robust research support but to have another degree in Social Work would be overkill. I want to obtain a PhD that speaks to the current economic climate if possible. Also gotta add I've been out of school for 10+ years and out of this game for quite some time. My options are a PhD program at UofC, UofA or another school that has a distance based PhD program.
I'm planning on applying for fall 2018, that being said I've started to research programs over the past months. I am interested in how humans have used the land in the past, and how we can use that information to inform the way we conserve ecosystems. Initially I was just looking at ecology programs, however I keep finding anthropology programs that seem to fit very closely with what I'm interested in. However, I'm nervous to apply to these programs since I don't have a lot of direct experience with Anthropology (besides an introductory cultural anthropology class I took as an undergrad). As an undergrad I double majored in Biology(with a focus in Ecology) and History. This year I have been working as a field technician on a project looking at how the warming climate will impact grass communities in the upper midwest. While this isn't directly related to anthropology, it has given me experience on proposing research questions, making a plans, and carrying out that research in the field (and also trouble shooting because nothing goes right when you're doing field work). So, questions: 1. Is there anything I could do to specifically make my application seem more appealing to Anthropology programs? 2. What should I keep in mind when applying to an Anthropology program? 3. Should I contact professors directly that I am interested in working with, or should I contact the departments? In ecology you contact the professors, but I've gotten mixed signals from social sciences and liberal arts. 4. If a school asks for a writing sample, what should I provide? I have some fairly long papers from my history degree. I did do a senior project in ecology, but that was presented in poster form so there is not written component to submit.
