In contrast with previous years, there does not seem to be much Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations activity on the forum. I doubt that this is because there's less interest than usual or fewer applicants, so maybe it would be a good idea if everyone in the field came together in this thread to share what we're applying for. I've applied to a number of Ancient Near East PhD programs, generally Assyriology related. It's a niche subject, so I'd be delighted if there's anyone else out there with similar interests. Anyone else?
Hi everyone, I see that Middle East and North African studies are kind of scattered throughout the forum, and not many people have started threads about contemporary studies. I'm very interested in Georgetown's program, and I've seen that a lot of people on here have applied and been accepted. I would be interested in seeing what it takes to get into the program with full funding, and so I'm starting this thread. Hopefully this can serve as a reference point for future applicants of this and other, comparable programs. Please type your info and stats below. Thanks and good luck! !بالتوفيق PROFILE: Type of Undergrad Institution: Major(s)/Minor(s): Relevant Coursework: Undergrad GPA: GRE: Other Tests (TOEFL, etc.): Letters of Recommendation: Relevant Work/Internships/Volunteer Experience: Relevant Experience Abroad: Research/Teaching Experience: Language skills (Arabic level, other languages): Subfield/Research Interests/Concentration: Scholarhips/Grants/Aid Applications Submitted (FLAS, departmental, etc.) RESULTS: Acceptanced/Waitlisted/Rejected/Pending: Other programs applied to:
I have been under the impression that it is difficult to get funding for masters programs. I am not entirely sure how accurate this is so I wanted to shout out to you guys and get thoughts. Top schools I'm considering: Johns Hopkins Georgetown NYU UVA UT Austin Does anyone have experience with these schools in particular or know about their reputation? Furthermore, are there strong schools that offer large amounts of aid that anyone knows of? Thanks!
