  1. I am looking to apply for English PhD programs in the New England area (or around there) which are fully funded with professors studying 19th century British literature and feminist/gender theory. However, I am worried about my chances of getting into a fully funded program because I didn't go to a prestigious undergrad or master's program. What kind of students apply to these programs? Does someone with this kind of background even stand a chance? University of Arizona BA in Creative Writing & Anthropology (Double Major) - 3.74 University of Southern Maine Stonecoast Creative

  3. I'm just curious, do people know much about SUNY Binghamton's PhD program in art history? Looking at their faculty, I must say they seem like a PERFECT fit for my interests (19th-20th century radical politics and their intersection with art movements). However, their job placement record, which they publicly post on their website, is mediocre at best. I am quite intrigued, but I know that that the academic job market is bad and getting worse. I'm hesitant to invest so much time in a PhD program that doesn't have proven, quality outcomes for its graduates. Any advice? Have any art historians on
  4. Is is really that much important the reputation of the university? I have been accepted to the MALS Dartmouth, Queen's MA in Political Legal Philosophy, St. Andrews MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies and Sherbrooke University for the Master of Laws (LLM). So far, the advices I have received are really to go with the prestigious school - Dartmouth, Queen's St. Andrews and to not keep Sherbrooke University. However, I do believe there is a value in their degree -- LLM. It is normally quite impossible to enter in that degree without a prior law degree so I have to say that despite
  5. As I have been investigating the biographies of PhD students in top tier history programs, I have been compiling a spreadsheet of where each student received his/her undergraduate degree(s) and Master's degree(s). There has been a bit of discussion in this forum lately about the importance of "Master's degree prestige" in applying to top tier PhD programs, so I hope this list is helpful to other users: University of Chicago 44 history grad students list their pre-PhD degrees on their Chicago webpages 40 came into the PhD program with a Bachelor's and Master's degree; 4 only had
  6. I'm having a really difficult time deciding between two of my offers and am hoping I can hear some different opinions. I am going for my masters. School A: A smaller school and program, doesn’t have the same longstanding "reputation" that the other school has. The program itself seems really great and I feel like I will have plenty of opportunities to publish and collaborate with others while I'm there. I immediately clicked with both the supervisor and the current lab members. I'm being offered amazing funding that will allow me to live comfortably and it is close enough to my hometown t
  7. SO...perhaps too close for comfort in regards to time, I am in a rock in a hard place and completely torn about my graduate school decision. Let me begin by saying that I have been accepted into the University of Michigan (AA) and am on the track to begin the clinical MSW program this September. At this time, I reside one hour away from U of M and after scheduling classes, I realize that U of M doesn't attempt to cater much to the "working adult" between field placement, classes, work study and group projects. Perhaps this is causing me to have some cold feet about attending. That leads to me
  8. How difficult would it be to attain a job in academia with a PhD from Texas A&M in the field of history? How about outside of academia? My specialization is Vietnam War/Southeast Asian history and foreign affairs. I was just wondering if universities looking to hire would brush it off, especially if I want to look for jobs in California (where I'm from). I assume Ivy League and top California schools would look more appealing than a degree from TAMU.
  9. Hi guys. I have been admitted to two Master's programs and would appreciate any advice you may have to offer. The first is Chicago's one-year MAPH program and the second is Villanova's two-year MA in English. Chicago cannot offer any funding, however, while Villanova is offering a Tuition Fellowship (though no stipend). Part of my thinks it would be insane to turn down the opportunity to study at Chicago for a year and have access to top-ten faculty and resources, even if it means going into considerable debt for tuition/living expenses. That same part of me justifies it by pointing
  10. Hello All, What are people's perception of the University of British Columbia? Is it a good program? Is it respected amongst sociologists? Any opinions on this program and where it falls in the top 10, 20, 30 etc? I applied there and think I have a great chance of being accepted. I just wanted to know the job prospects for after obtaining a PhD there as opposed to a top 20 school like the University of Washington or a top 10 school like UCLA.
