sacklunch Posted November 27, 2013 Share Posted November 27, 2013 (edited) Hey ya'll, I'm normally over in the Religion section. I'm applying to mostly religious studies and near eastern programs this fall, but was advised to apply to UMichigan's interdepartmental program in Greek and Roman history. I am also applying to UMich's Near Eastern Studies program, but figured I would go ahead and do both in hopes of getting in at one. I am mainly confused on what sorts of things I need to emphasize in my application to a history program. Perhaps this belongs over in the SOP section, but I'm also wondering about my overall application as a 'history' person. Do they expect me to have a good idea of a dissertation (they do not in my field)? Briefly, about me: BA - religious studies, philosophy (magna cum), MTS (2 year academic degree in mostly classical languages, biblical studies, etc.), and now current MA (2 year academic religion degree). I have quite a bit of language training: 5-6 years classical Greek, 3-4 classical Latin, 4 years classical Hebrew, 1 year Aramaic, 1 year classical Syriac, 3 years German. And since I am in my fourth year of graduate work already a decent amount of advanced seminars presuming a lot of language heavy work, and so on. Anyways, I am mainly trying to get a feel for what folks are expected to have coming into programs like this! thanks friends!
