mlt_unc Posted August 16, 2012 Share Posted August 16, 2012 I just completed my BFA in graphic design and after several months in the field I feel soulless. I always knew I wanted to pursue a master's degree (and possibly a PhD), so I'm starting to think that it might be time for a change. A big change. My father was an archeologist, my mother a marine biologist. I grew up complaining about the inaccuracy of Jurassic Park - it just never crossed my mind that it might be a field I would want to be involved in. I'm pretty sure 16 year old me thought 'I don't wanna be like my parents.' Now I realize that I did myself a huge disfavor by selecting art rather than science. My dream would be to enter into a evolutionary biology/paleontology program as a Master's student. I'm wondering if it's even possible? I took all the basic biology classes during my BFA and some anthropology/arch classes, receiving good marks in all. I'm just concerned that I'm going to send in my application and that people are going to read art and laugh. Would taking GRE subject tests help at all? Are they going to tell me to go back into undergrad coursework? Has anyone made the jump to an unrelated field? I'm looking for any advice or experience, even if it's in a completely different area of interest. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
