  1. Hi all! I'm looking for PhD programs in environmental studies with an interdisciplinary approach - ideally, a program that'll be supportive of combining environmental studies with perspectives and methodologies such as anthropology, queer studies, postcolonialism and/or animal studies. Got any leads? I've heard of a few programs that might do that: The Institute for the Environment & Sustainability at UCLA The E-IPER (Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources) at Stanford The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society at

  3. Does anyone know how many applicants they are accepting for sociocultural and related subfields at NYU this year? Has anyone heard back?
  4. Hi Everyone! I am currently finishing up my MPH at the University of Rochester and am looking at applied medical anthropology programs and programs that might have a great interest in substance abuse/domestic violence? Does anyone have any suggestions of what schools to look at? My Profile is: Masters GPA 3.9 Undergrad GPA's 3.2 (public comm degree) 3.7 (anthro degree went back to school) GRE scores: I am retaking them! I should have one or two publications by the end of my program coming up soon and I have TA experience. Really just looking for general information abo
  5. Hi all, I am posting this question to anyone who might have applied to anthropology program at Washu/Wustl. Have you had interview with them? If yes, when and how many times. I have not heard anything yet and at this moment I cannot wait anymore. I have seen four updates in the result page stating interviews with faculty members. Thank you so much.
  6. This question always trips me up! Do I go broad and say that I'm a postmodernist or something? Or do I talk about the smaller scale theories I use from one or two writers? I never know how to go about answering questions about what theories I use in my research because often the articles we read don't usually say that I'm taking a specific type of approach. I'm in linguistic anthropology so I use a lot of semiotic theory, a lot of identity/interaction/discourse theory for discourse analysis, but I never know if they have actual labels. I get very tripped up by this question and I need to
  7. What is the academic job market for Anthropology PhDs really like? How bad is it really? What do you do if you don't get a job? What is the situation in the different subfields? What about tier 1 universities in USA/UK? And what about lower ranked ones? Also, is there anybody here from India who has experienced the job search at home, whether they are trained here or abroad? I do not mean to snoop. I am considering grad school and finally an academic career in the social sciences, but I am trying to figure out exactly what I should go for. I find whatever little anthropology I k
  8. Hi folks, I am an international student pursuing MA in AUS, and will apply for Fall 2020 PhD later this year, Physical Anthro or Archae track, depends on the program. Here's my question: Should I retake GRE for AWA its own sake? Other scores of mine are ok (i guess): 90th percentile above in both V and Q, 113 in TOEFL with 26 in Speaking, 3.8/4.0 undergrad GPA, Distinction in MA so far. But i only received 3.5 on AWA. As i am going to apply some top programs (UMich, Duke, UCLA, etc.), will this AWA score hold me back? Or, will a decent Writing Sample compensate it? No way I can
  9. Hey all, I've been thinking of joining some new professional anthropology and archaeology societies. I've been a member of the Society for American Archaeology for a few years but was really troubled to read about what happened this past week at their conference: https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2019/04/15/archaeology-group-faces-backlash-over-how-it-handled-known-harassers-attendance I want to be part of societies that take sexual misconduct, looting, racism, and other issues that have been prevalent in anthropology very seriously. What societies are you a part of? What journals do yo
  10. Hello! I got accepted to the WSAR track at Emory Religion. Any seniors/religion graduates here? How is the programme? The annual stipend is 31k. I wish to know how rigorous the programme is? How are their placements? My other option is the partially funded Masters in Social Sciences from UChicago. PS I have to make a decision by April 15!
  11. Anyone on here applying to Tulane for Anthropology or Linguistics this year? I've applied to both Anthropology (cultural) and EEB for PhDs, and my partner applied for Anthropology (linguistic) and Linguistics. Tulane is our top choice, so I'm super nervous about getting in/getting funding! My GPA is okay (3.35 for unofficial transcript, probably gonna be 3.5 by final transcript - it's mostly my freshman year weighing me down), as are my GRE scores (QU: 150, QA: 160, W: 4.5), but I've got 2 major research projects, 2 internships, a small business (unrelated to the field of study), and even
  12. Hey all, It has been a long time since I've been to this forum, but I thought I would write this post to share my experiences as an anthro major in undergrad to getting my MA through the MAPSS program at UChicago, and where I am now, in case any of you are wondering if it's worth it, or are just looking for some perspective in a field that is only getting more difficult to make something of, both academically and professionally. Please note that this review/perspective is from someone who decided *NOT* to pursue a PhD, but instead chose a non-academic career path. Maybe you can rela
  13. Does anyone have any experience with studying sociocultural anthropology at Brandeis? I've been accepted into their joint MA Anthropology / Women's Gender and Sexuality studies program. I'm curious to know of others' experiences or just knowledge of the program.
  14. Hi all, All my applications are in for the Fall 2019 cycle (for MA programs), and I'm starting to get responses. I know this is weird, but I want to get a head start on my PhD applications, which I assume I'll be submitting around December 2020/January 2021. I know my research interests might change in the future, but I'm wondering if it's too early to start reaching out to POI at these schools. I think the general themes of my interests will still be similar to my interests now. There is one professor in particular that I want to email and the school is where I did my undergrad (I s
  15. Hi all! Wondering if anyone is going to be attending American Ethnological Society conference in March, and is looking for a roomshare to save costs.

  17. I've deferred my enrollment to a PhD program to fall 2019. When should I start applying for funding? I also noticed that many of the fellowships don't have applications and you have to be nominated. In that case, what can I do as an incoming grad student?
  18. I'm an international student with 2 years of work experience and an Integrated (UG+PG) MA in Development Studies, applying to US schools for a PhD in Anthropology. I feel the weak link in my profile is my undergrad GPA and I'm not sure what to do about it. II was in an inter-disciplinary programme and had to take compulsory courses in Economics and I ended up choosing a quant-heavy minor as well, which really brought my GPA down. These courses don't matter to Anthro, I guess and schools that I'm applying to have repeatedly mentioned that it's only one aspect of the application. But it still w
  19. Anyone know of any good PhD programs that are very interdisciplinary with Visual Culture & Anthro?
  20. I was just curious about who my fellow 2019 anthro applicants are. What subfield are you in? Subject interests? Thoughts on public anthropology? (this was a big thing a my uni last spring, at least) I'd love to know! I'm in bioanth, and I really want to how nonhuman primates move and groove. And if Alec Baldwin hosting the US release of Walking with Cavemen didn't make huge waves in public opinion of bioanth then I don't know what will. /sarcasm This is my second round, so I've been through the drudgery before. I'm wishing everyone the best!
  21. Hello everyone, I am looking to apply to graduate school for this upcoming fall (2019). I would really like to find an M.A anthropology program with available funding. My academic interests coalesce around such topics as ethnohistory, ethnography, identity, cultural exchange, experience, and visual anthropology. The intersection between anthropology, critical history, and the dynamic human experience of the individual is central to my worldview and shapes what I envision for myself in terms of future study and research. I also have strong tilt towards South Asia, as I have completed numer
  22. One of the profs writing my letter of rec recently asked me if he would simply receive a link from the school to which I apply in order to submit his letter. I'm not sure. Does anyone know how professors go about submitting the letter? Thanks in advance!
  23. Hey all, I have received a copy of my official transcripts from my undergraduate university. I am applying to 10 PhD programs. Could I simply scan a copy of my transcript 10 times and send the schools those or must I send each school an actual transcript in the post? Thanks in advance
  24. So I applied to several graduate schools last fall and got into the University of South Florida and the University of Tulsa. However, I had to defer my enrollment for both to fall 2019 since I didn't get any funding. I only have a bachelor's degree but wanted to go straight to do my phd if possible. My GRE scores are 149 Verbal, 146 Quant, and 4.0 Writing. I'm planning to take the GRE again to improve my score. My field is cultural anthropology and I'm interested in Japan, sexuality, and religion. I wanted to apply to a few more schools, but Im not quite sure where to apply or what schools gi
  25. Hello everyone! I recently finished the first year of my phd program in Anthropology. My focus is in South India, and I was awarded a Pilot Research grant in order to go to India this summer and start making contacts/finding my future research site. Although I like the University I attend, and am grateful for this opportunity, I have not been given much guidance on what to actually do. I am leaving for India towards the end of August, and have selected a few sites to visit(my research has to do with Muslim's who participate in Hindu religious rituals), but at this time I do not speak the
