  1. Hello, I am hunting around for a Master of Arts program in Classics / Classical Studies / Ancient History (preferably Classical Studies so I am getting both the language and culture courses in my MA), but my issue is that I would need to pursue the program online. I would prefer the school be based in the United States (non-profit, no for-profit schools) as I would need to get financial aid to attend, and there are little to no scholarships that I have found that would apply to a distance program learner, especially one that is for an American student attending a British school at a dista
  2. I recently got accepted to a super rad master's program in archaeology in England (consistently ranked in the top 10 in the world [brag brag blah blah]). I was so happy and proud of myself and absolutely psyched to go until I started talking to my sister about it. For some context on all the confusion I'm about to express: I had probably one of the worst career centers for archaeology at my undergrad institution. There were literally no resources and nobody in the office knew anything about getting started in archaeology. On top of that, there were only two archaeology professors in the entire
  3. Hi all, I hope this finds you well. I am currently writing my PhD in Near Eastern Archaeology. I used a very useful database that helped me organising my data. I thought that might be of interest for some of you. I think it could be also used to record finds on excavations. I am not sure if I can post the link to it in here? Otherwise I am happy to provide a review. Stay safe and take care
  4. So, I discovered this program(me) recently because I tend to just look around at other universities for fun because I compile resource pages for aspiring Classicists and thought some of you might be interested in the program(me). It's entirely online and the courses they have on offer include ancient Egypt, which I think is a great thing. Another great thing about this program(me) is that it can be taken as individual courses, a Postgraduate Certificate, or a Postgraduate Diploma if you don't want to pursue the full Master of Science with the dissertation. I've put the link below for fol
  5. Hi guys. I've seen people in other areas begin threads for the Fall 2019 applicants, so I figured I would start the Classics thread. I'm graduating in May and working on applying to a large variety of Masters and Ph.D programs related to Classical Archaeology.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I'm done writing my thesis proposal, and I'm working on filling out the RTAF for the graduate school. I've selected two faculty members for my thesis advisory committee but I need at least one more person to serve on my committee. I've found an archaeologist who worked at the site I'm interested in, but how do I go about contacting her to ask if she'll serve on my committee? Is name-dropping acceptable? Would it be best to include a CV/resume and a copy of my proposal, or would this be perceived as annoying fluff? What form of communication is preferred? Any and all information is appreciated!
  9. So I'm having trouble figuring out how narrow my interests need to be before I apply to grad school. Some background: I'm aiming to apply to an anthropology Master's program that begins this fall (super quick, I know. Long story), at the same school I got my B.A. in 2014. The program has a focus on cultural resource management (CRM), and it's a terminal Master's. I've worked as an archaeology tech with a government agency for two seasons, going on three, so I know I want to do CRM. I'm also interested in historic archaeology of the American West, and have some interest in public archaeolo
  10. I'm trying to decide between Ole Miss and George Mason's Masters programs. I'm archaeology track, specifically zooarch. Does anyone have any insights to one or either of these schools?
  11. I know for sure that I want to go to graduate school when I finish my undergrad (spring 2018), however, I'm not really sure where to start. I've been researching a decent amount of schools, but I'm not entirely sure what schools are in my league and which are pipe dreams. I'm interested in both MA and PhD programs. My focus would be in Mayan bioarchaeology. So far I've been interested in Texas A&M, Arizona State, and University College London. By the time I graduate I'll have two field schools, one domestic and study abroad that actually focuses on Mayan Bioarch. My GPA is curr
  12. Hello! We've got a thread for all of Anthropology, but how about all you Archaeology-specific applicants? Who are you? What do you study? Where are you applying? Have you heard back from anyone? Nervously twiddling your thumbs? Gather 'round!
  13. Hey everybody, Just wondering if anyone waiting it out has applied to Anthro programs this Fall. I guess I'll start, I've applied to 3 MA programs at IUPUI, Ball State, and SIU Carbondale. I'm in archaeology, and am hoping to research prehistoric North American arch, specifically Mississippian/Fort Ancient relations. I've been working in the CRM field for the past 3 years, and as some of you might know, you hit a wall as a field technician without a MA. So that's my goal, get an MA, then an RPA, and perhaps eventually a PhD! I would love to direct my own field school one day. My GRE
  14. Hello all, I'm excited to have found this great resource, so I'm hoping to find someone that can help me out and give me some great suggestions. For the longest time, I was convinced that forensic anthropology was the route to go with the job market being okay and there being plenty of schools for the degree. After I visited some graduate schools, I decided to stick with my true interest: Osteoarchaeology! Now, I'm having a hard time finding schools that would give me what I need to continue on that path. The schools I visited were small and I was really happy about the close-knit f
  15. Hello everyone, well as the title states I'm in my final year (joined degree BA history of art/archaeology & Study of religions) and have been looking for some work experience after I graduate. I've already applied to some summer and graduate programs in museums (Peggy Guggenhem, Metropolitan museum, Smithsonian) but I am still looking for more opportunities. I am not set on a particular country or region but really feel like the few online graduate internships are in the US. So I was wondering if anyone else was in the same position, where have you guys applied to?
  16. Hello all, I recently was accepted into University College London's Cultural Heritage Studies MA program through its Institute of Archaeology. I had applied for a Fulbright to cover the cost, but alas, was not awarded a grant. I'm considering taking out the loans for the one year program ($25,000 tuition for US students), but the prospect of graduating with all of the debt and then some, is frightening. I am now wondering if I would be better off finding a program in the US. However, it seems as though there is not a lot of funding options for taught MA programs in the US, and most of the p
  17. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how typical it is for MA students in classical archaeology/history to receive TA positions. I'm taking a post-bac course in classical languages in the fall and hope to be at Michigan, Cincinnati, Bryn Mawr, or Ohio State for the fall of 2013. Does anyone have any recommendations or advice about TA-ing or even fellowships? I want to teach when it's all said and done but don't really know how to start.
  18. Hey All, So I graduated from Berkeley with a BA in English (Medieval focus). After a long process which I won't bore you with, I decided this past Fall to apply for a MSc in Zooarchaeology at York in the UK. I have been in touch with professors at York to get more information on the program and how I can prepare. I took an Intro to Archeology class at Cal, as well as a Physical Anthro class, and am currently taking a Forensic Anthropology class and a Cultural Anthropology class at UT Austin Extension. I am IN LOVE with my forensic class and this has only solidified my desire to dive into an
