coldbrew Posted June 22, 2015 Share Posted June 22, 2015 (edited) Hey all! I'll try to keep this precise- Last year of undergrad studies in Electronics and Communication Engineering. Expect the CGPA to end up around 7.7-8/10. Have worked as a trainee with a telecom security firm and have been volunteering with a Woman Empowerment Organization since last December. Now, as I have neither Humanities or Social Sciences background and I am interested in studying SocioCultural Anthropology- 1. How can I fill the gap and enhance my CV? Any internships, programmes I can enroll myself into? Diplomas? 2. Some universities have courses designed for students from various fields. If I go for them, - again, I would want to have a better CV than what I currently have. - will references from my faculties (technical subjects) suffice? - how do I calculate the probability of getting accepted into a university and take my chances? With all my admission requirements ready(GRE score or not, references, SOPs, essays, etc.), do I simply apply at all those universities which have courses which suit me best? - I intend to delve into research. Can I go for a research degree, given I have no formal anthropological training? 3. Also, what are some of the best universities for Social/Cultural Anthropology in US/UK? Or any other country in Europe. Student diversity and student culture matters. Thanks! Edited June 22, 2015 by coldbrew Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
