Jocelyn-xo Posted November 8, 2017 Share Posted November 8, 2017 Alright so for the longest time I wanted to be like Bones and pursue forensic anthropology. Texas State has a MA program for forensic anthropology and that was my plan. I am now realizing that I am more passionate about getting a MA or PhD in bioarchaeology specifically in the region of the Andes or Peru, My undergrad anthro department focused on Maya archaeology so many of my undergrad classes are related to the Maya region. Would it be easier to get into a program that focuses on that? Does it make a huge difference if I get an MA or PhD? I have zero funds for grad school so I will be living entirely off of grants or end up in a huge amount of debt (which I've accepted). I have been on 2 study abroad trips: One an archaeological field school in Belize and another not a field school but still studying the Maya in the Yucatan, Should I do another field school? I know I need an internship as well but I have yet to find one near me that relates to bioarchaeology. Any advice would help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
