In addition to department tabling, where you can chat with representatives from anthropology MA and PhD programs, the fair also includes two panel discussions where you can hear insider perspectives on the application process.

Panel 1: “How to Get Into Grad School”

Panelists: Jennifer Patico (Georgia State), Jeff Maskovsky (CUNY), Rebecca Prentice (University of Sussex)
Moderator: Ashley Bruckner (AAA)

This panel features three professors who will offer an orientation to the grad school application process. Topics include: how to decide where (and whether!) to apply, how grad admissions is different from undergrad, and common mistakes to avoid. Bring your questions and come for candid advice.

Panel 2: “Using Grad School to Advance Your Career”

Panelists: Evan Hanover (Conifer Research), Alexandra Botti (Axios), Lyle Torp (Ottery Group)
Moderator: Daniel Ginsberg (AAA)

You may be at the beginning of your grad school journey right now, but what awaits you at the end? Our three panelists with master’s degrees in cultural anthropology, linguistics, and archaeology will reflect on grad school as a phase of their professional pathway and how it led to what came after. We’ll discuss dos and don’ts of graduate school, specifically thinking about how you might use that time not just to learn anthropology but also to prepare for your own next step.
