tistre Posted April 14, 2009 Share Posted April 14, 2009 I'm completely unfamiliar with what it's like to be in a four-field anthro department. I did my undergrad at UofT in a very interdisciplinary program, and I only took a few upper-year anthro courses, so I really didn't get a sense of what kind of narratives around studying anthropology the department had. For my MA, I came to an exclusively social anthro program with a couple of archaeologists in the mix. I don't know a thing about archaeology, let alone biological anthro or linguistic. Did this influence anyone's decision to apply to schools? My sense of what anthropology is is quite isolated from the other subfields. I'd like to hear more thoughts on this from others. And to those who are currently graduate students in four-field programs -- what is that like? Other than taking requisite core courses and so on, what is the level of interaction you have with the other subfields? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
