  1. I just recently graduated this past spring with a degree in Film & Media Studies (with a focus on journalism). Because my major was an interdisciplinary program and because I went to a liberal arts university, I was able to take classes in different departments and connect patterns among various ideas. I took many Sociology classes, which I not only did well in, but also loved. However, over time I have realized that the Anthropology perspective is more suitable for me. Additionally, I have much extracurricular experience in the world of journalism, and I’ve found that long-form journalism has ethnographic elements. I hope to pursue graduate school in Anthropology (perhaps Sociocultural or Applied) as I feel it will give me the proper foundation in order to understand other cultures, and provide me with the skills to be a deeper critical thinker, better writer on culture, and more. I am also interested in potentially pursuing either a career in international reporting or user research, which I feel a Master’s in Anthro will help me succeed in (I'm not interested in a PhD program at this time). I hope to enroll in a grad program that is a combination of practice and theory, and I am interested in doing fieldwork. Do you have any advice for me? What programs should I look into?
  2. Hello, aspiring anthro grad students. I'm wondering if anyone out there knows what the story is on the University of Washington's move to accepting sociocultural PhD students EVERY OTHER year. Do you think it's a money-saving move, or a department politics decision, or something else? From their website: "Archaeology and Biocultural Anthropology admissions will be run every year, however, Sociocultural Anthropology has moved to an every other year model admitting students in the odd numbered year. Next admission cycle for Sociocultual Anthropology will be for Autumn 2013."
