dianaredwing Posted January 27, 2011 Share Posted January 27, 2011 I am a non-traditional student who changed my major as an undergrad a few years back 3 times because is was BORED with the first two, having accomplished in the "real" world what we were "theorizing" in class. So, I ended up in English with a minor in Native American Studies, then I got my MA in English/Creative Writing a couple of years later and applied to a university back home as I was really homesick. I visited in advance but was really not at all happy with the program although I was focusing on a concentration in Creative Writing. During all this time, in spite of the obvious displeasure of the various English departments, I took a number of courses in Anthropology, History, and Ethnology. I am currently teaching at a community college because I just couldn't decide what to do at my school. I want to go back and finish my PhD. But, my only logical choice for my current school (which I have not attended in 3 semesters) is to concentrate in Folklore, which I really like, but I think I really want to finish up in American Studies as that interdisciplinary approach is the real me. I have done my research and found several possible schools but was wondering if anyone had any experience in these programs. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
