canklean Posted November 22, 2013 Share Posted November 22, 2013 Hello everyone, I'll cut to the chase, I'm currently a grad student getting an MA in Anthropology (Environmental Anthro focus) and a Graduate Certificate in GIS. I'm especially interested in coastal adaptation to climate change, especially among port cities in North America. I really do like anthropology, but I'm noticing that geographers tend to focus more on what I'm interested in. I'm more interested in how people behave as a collective in relation to their environment. I've looked at some research by geographers and it is easily something I could see myself doing. Even my anthro advisor thinks I should be doing human geography. My question is, with an MA in Anthro and a cert. in GIS, will there be enough overlap for me to transition into a PhD program smoothly, or would I have to start over from scratch? Thanks for all your advice Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
